Can You Hear Me Now?

Location

Can you hear the sound of the world calling your name?

Can you hear your heart talking to your brain to make sure you are awake?

Can you hear your name being called repeatedly by those around you?

Cause I can't

Constant pain from not being "normal"

Why can't I be like you?

Why am I partially deaf, yet my siblings are perfectly fine?

Don't you see I am miserable because I am not like everyone else?

I wish I was able to feel as happy as I possibly could

I guess it's not that bad

But if only I had more to myself

I love myself

I love how I am

I am unique

I am enough

I know it, she knows it, they know it

Do you know it?

I don't care what you think

Can You Hear Me Now?
