If You Would Just Listen


If people only realized this is as loud as I can be

I won't bray like a donkey just so you can hear me.

Just because I'm not boisterous and annoying

Dosen't mean I'm also always boring.

I like my volume where it's at

Yet I'm not skiddish like a stray cat.

Please talk to me normally

You don't have to watch your steps orderly.

I have important things to say too

My life doesn't revolve around this zoo.

My voice can in fact leave my house

Even though it squeaks like a mouse.
