Speak as Loud as You Want

Speak as Loud as You Want

They didn’t whisper

Just held their hands 

Up to their mouths

As they gossiped about me

Speaking loud enough

For me to hear

As I walked by

I didn’t understand

What it meant then

How they feared the power

Of a confident woman

Who didn’t care a whit

What they said

    1. It was a hard time, but always kept my chin up. I learned to ignore a lot of the nonsense.
