Speak Louder

Words

formulate

on the

edge

of these

nervously

coloured

red

lips

statements

all in

creative

shapes

ready

to jump

out

shout

loud

proudly

announcing

my individuality

imagination

running wild

only to

be

shut down

as an

irrelevant

unimportant

foolish

child

silence

children

should

seen

not

heard

invisible

shadows

reflections of

toxic shame

preventing

tiny voices

speaking out

harmonic

expression

collecting

on the

brink

on my

madness

sadness

low esteem

self-loathing

self-hate

wait

I wear

a collection

of an

external

submission

these are not

my wounds

or

scars

I carry them

protectively

for my

forefathers

of sin

where do they

end

where do I

begin

courage

to change

systematic

beliefs

outdates

narratives

immorality

depraved

wickedness

debauched

insecurities

misguided

fearfulness

a tiny voice

once spoke

whispered

an echo

created

a loud

sound

a voice

lost within

sang

a

collective

profound

lullaby

hidden

within

each inner

child

unify

as new world

has

began
