Will the real authentic me stand up?
Why? So I can be put down?
No way, I’ll just continue to be invisible
Unnoticed in the corner, hiding
It’s safer than way…or is it?
If I don’t say or write something
I have no voice, my opinions aren’t heard
But what if no one cares to hear my thoughts?
They still exist and if I express them
Someone…somewhere will listen, if only me
