Speak For Myself

 

 

I speak for myself

That's the only person

Who's emotions

I can accurately articulate

 

There has never been

A person like me

And there will never

Be one in the future

 

No one has had

Exactly the same

Experiences as I

No one has reacted

To all of these experiences

Exactly as I had

 

So, as you read these ideas

Don't you dare think

That I speak for all black people

Nor all refugees

Nor every student sleeping

At the back of the lecture

Nor every young adult

Struggling to find

Work in this economy

Nor every person

Adjusting in a foreign country

Nor everyone who

Feels ostracized

 

I speak for myself

But the beauty of poetry

Gives me the ability

To paint emotions

And abridge a history

That many can relate to
