My thoughts inspired by the RBG and current noise.
For when children
We’re only meant to be seen.
Obedience seen as a great virtue,
Not of the child
But perfect parenting.
The child conditioned
That those in authority , if happy,
Lead to their happiness.
For the young girl
Who has always waited second in line to the boy.
For the ethnic amongst us,
Chastised and ridiculed for our natural differences.
For the elderly, the poor, the veterans,
All those who’s voices are dismissed.
For all we have misunderstood,
For all we have had a hand in the making.
And now, I not only speak
For a call to our senses, our consciousness.
With the raising of that conscious voice,
Only then will any speech
Be worthy for the time given to listen.
