Sometimes I just want to be heard,
E'en though I'm small, my voice not loud.
I tend to blend, be out of sight,
Hid to the side, out in the crowd.
But times there are when I need voice-
But often when I have a thought
I have no chance to speak my part,
Be heard, e'en slight responses got.
But maybe, if my thoughts I write
Then others will of them take note:
I may be hid, still out of sight,
But now with voice to sway a vote.
So now I write- Let others see!-
And know that to be heard I seek.
Now, maybe friends and classmates too
Will listen to me when I speak.
