Who has ever told to you?

Watch your mouth

Think before you speak

Shut up

Shut up

Shut up

Poetry says

Open your mouth

Try your voice.

Speak your way.

Poetry says

Express what you see.

Be who you think you are.

Learn your humanity.

Your own singularity

Open your eyes

Risk your heart.

Dare the world

And when the whole world

Smashes you ~

Poetry says

Make the next lines deep arterial blood.

 See what that’s like.
