Form: Free Verse

‘Speak out’ you say
and ‘say how you feel’
but we both know my voice will be silenced
for being the wrong one
just an insignificant being
and not worthy of sharing the same table
as the hallowed ones
and they don’t need to say
‘just shut up’
for their opinion
sugar coated in residual masculinity
will always be the voice that is heard
for a guy like me has no place
should just go away
fade back into the shadows
to never be seen
