Say the words out loud.
Every word They told you not to speak
it wasn’t proper,
Every word you feel is wrong
you cannot say.
Say them with conviction
and let them rip the veil down.
Throw your arms back,
raise your head,
and scream them out straight through the judgment.
Fuck. You. World.
Embrace your voice
and let the long forbidden sounds
roll around your mouth
and fill your lungs with all the
of a language They can’t silence
Say the words.
