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
