Forced to the back,

Crammed against the wall like a tack,

Pushed out of View

Treated like I have the flu.


It's been happening for years,

I speak and no one hears,

Never told anything,

Completely ignored when I sing.


This is where I belong,

That knowledge can't be prolonged,

But how can this be my family,

When they exclude me so shamelessly?

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
