The Unwanted Beast

The Unwanted Beast

Why is it when I speak
everyone becomes quiet and meek?
If you have an opinion,
share it with me.

Instead you avoid
like your emotions need steroids
in order to be expressed
in your time of stress

It seems, in order to be heard,
I must stutter my words
I must behave unsure
The moment must be yours

Because my confidence
to your ego is not a compliment
the courage to speak ones mind
doesn’t always go over well with mankind

So you flock to be
with minds that are free-
free of critique
where opinions are not bespeak’d

So in these moments I resign to be
a coward to keep peace
or brave and lonely
for my ideas being released
make me the Unwanted Beast.
