You're not the determination of my self worth

Location

You're not the determination of myself worth
I have a voice,
We have a voice in which needs to be heard
that has value
that needs to be deemed JUST as important
& that matters too.
I have an opinion that should not be shut down,
We should be just as valid,
no matter my skin color
Our sexual orientation
Our religion
 Our beliefs
& especially OUR gender.
I deserve respect
We aren't asking for it
based on how we dress,
 who we associate with
and how we "come off" as.
No one determines our worth based on what they see
what they hear
& what they witness
My opinion matters
OUR voice needs to be heard
 and my respect should be valued.
No matter the instance,
YOU
do not determine if I am important
