Be loud, be heardMature

We speak to be heard
and are not heard when we speak
told to be loud
be heard
but they take our voices
and our words
and treat them like some alien action
like that is not what we meant
like it is something else entirely
they turn us into someone
or something
we never intended to be
you are potential
but are you your own potential
or someone else's to sap?

The End
