Speak

by: glimmers & change


I've been thinking a lot about anger

about how angry I am

How I was maybe

born into this


I watch my mother sometimes

she is beautiful

in every light

but she is nervous

and does not always use her voice


My father speaks over me a lot

I am constantly defeated

by my own silence

With these two initiatives

I try to reconcile

talking in between

and not speaking at all


The past,

the future

of me

Is a constant battle

a struggle, towards acceptance

I am working

to be visible

And to approve of myself

As easily seen

As unnoticed

in shadows of the same light

of a different time
