Born Screaming

i dont understand you as you rush to
silence me
hush hush now
sometimes you say please but mostly
i see the trace of resentment on your lips
as if i am daring you by speaking but
dont you see
i was born screaming
words ripping through me faster than i could think of them
dont you get that
i was born with a flame that
despite even the most inexhaustible efforts
will not be extinguished
dont you understand that i was born
with raised fists and a belief in
fighting
clawing
dragging our tired bodies through this world
with passion
so dont say shut up
i cant
