Seen not heard

– 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.
