I Have A Voice
Created for a creative writing project at the CLIC conference last year, where we were only told to use a title of “I have a voice”.
I have a voice, but cannot be heard,
I can speak as loud or as quiet as I like,
Yet no one will hear me speak.
My mind races to try and find a new voice,
To help people see the real me,
They hear the voice I use sometimes,
But still this is not me.
The joy and sorrow I try to share,
Yet again my voice is so unclear,
I have a voice,
I have a voice inside of me,
It whispers and shouts, listen to me dear,
Yet again when I speak I’m so unclear.
