I’ll talk

I ruffle some feathers when I talk a lot

Especially when I disagree with those who are taught

To think that they know everything-they often are

In positions of authority and power

I don’t perceive myself as disadvantaged in any way

But someone like me is expected to stay

Rather quiet, submissive, not have opinions strong

So when I act the opposite, it rubs people in a way that’s wrong..


When I don’t speak up, myself I disappoint

To be heard, first I have to express my viewpoint

I am afraid it would come back to bite me

If those in power I upset with my audacity

Then I reason, if I hold myself back due to fear

The status-quo would never change, that much is clear


I muster the courage to raise my voice

To speak up is a conscious choice

Even if it makes people uncomfortable

I shall bring my ideas to the table..
