How can I explain.

Happy New Year. I’m back, and should be for a reasonable while, I’m doing a poem a day for the next month so hopefully I can keep the posts rolling as well, as well as the posts I’m scheduling so hopefully it’ll be decently into February before I disappear again. This poem is for a friend, maybe they know who they are, maybe not.


How can I explain

A beautiful broken voice

Speaking scarred words

Made complete in its brokenness

Filled with the colours of the rainbow

Hidden in a self-perceived thunder cloud

Taught to be a different voice

Creating the scars on the words

No voice should be changed by prejudice

Definitely not this voice

So beautiful

So broken

So perfect.


Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.
