How Do i Speak?


I open my mouth

Your eyes snap shut

Your hands clamp over your ears

I must stop

Wait until you calm

But when you demand an answer

This is always your reply

You share no knowledge

You listen to no questions

Yet my future depends on what I have not learned

You are not my teacher

I don't know who is
