– Amiya Vellapally 12 AICE R
As a woman I am often
seen, not heard, not because
I have nothing to say but
because they do not listen.
As a woman, I take pride in having
opinions, no matter how radical and
fighting for what I believe in and
critiquing what I do not; no matter
who says it or how uncomfortable it makes
ME. A woman.
As a woman I take pride in being heard
before I am seen, and fighting, and being.
I like my mind more than my face,
Than my body.
