This time.......

I may have been a feline

I may have been a bird

or possibly reptilian

and couldnít

speak

a word

I may have suffered greatly

I may have felt so small

though I could have been a mammoth

Herculean,

strong

and tall

Whatever the injustice

that I suffered while so mute

Iíll harbor deep inside my soul

yet, wear it,

like a suit

for now I am loquacious

I have a voice to share!

this time I canít be quiet

Ďtil all is just

and fair

I may not take this path again

a being with free speech

so Iíll not waste this precious chance

to say

to pray

to teach
