Be fearless. Your voice was not made to be silenced, And neither was your thought. Give it tongue, give it volume, give it song. Give it your lips and your teeth. This is what you are to the world. This is your truth, and your way. There is nothing more precious than this. Bite hard, never let go.
Published a few years ago as part of poetry collection for my university Womyns Centre. Thought it became relevant again.
