Critisism highly welcome, Ive only just tried my hand at poetry in the last few months. “Maybe Ill sing” I’m not blind, Yet I cannot see. I’m not deaf, But where are the words? I’m not mute, But my voice isn’t speaking. But what if I took off the black glasses, And the plugs from my ears, The gag out of my mouth, And the sadness from my tears? If I took things as they are, Gave each person a chance. Forget what my friends think, I might even learn to dance. Maybe Ill accept what I’m hearing, And act on it instead, I won’t close myself off, To what’s going on in my head. I’ll speak as myself, And not as a shield. I’ll take all the insults, Consider, not yield. And most of all, Ill finally be me. And hopefully in time, I will finally see. And hear, And speak, And to top it all off, Maybe Ill sing.
