Anonymous said: what if its hard to write what i feel, because its too compliacted
Start there. Talk about its complications. Write through the kinks and rough edges. Slowly break down your own walls. Fitzgerald said, “Leave your heart on the page,” and do exactly that. No matter how complicated it may be, just write everything down.
"You’re gonna do great today"
my father tells me to stop shouting
but at this rate i’ll end up hoarse
before i pipe down
because there are too many things
to yell about.
the fact that my own mother
tells me that the anatomy
she helped create,
the same anatomy she tells me
i should never be ashamed of
needs to be covered when i go out,
that a skirt too short
or a dress too revealing
makes me look indecent,
yet I know this wouldn’t be her
if she had a son.
my father tells me that i’m too loud
but he hasn’t yet figured out that
I inherited it from him,
that some traits were passed down
to his daughters
even though he wanted to see them
had a been a boy, he would’ve told me
to shout louder,
the the world wants to hear
what a man has to say.
I’ll keep shouting until someone listens,
until i wake up god from a peaceful
he created all men equally,
where do i fit in?
