Poem by J.M. Johnson

There’s something I want
above anything at all
to find my voice
to answer the call
I want to sing a song
to a crowd of fans
and share my story
throughout all the lands
I want to speak my truth
say it loud
be brave for once
make everyone proud
I want to write a speech
then read it out
make everyone listen
without having to shout.

There’s one thing I want
above anything at all…
