Young – Kaitlyn Repman

Being young is not easy,

especially with older eyes

glaring at you

with hatred.

 

Being young is not easy

when you have information shoved down your throat,

but you are not allowed to cough any back up —

too afraid to be wrong.

 

Being young is not easy

when you are told to sit and be still:

to never spoke unless asked a question,

to act like you don’t exist in a room full of people.

 

Being young is not easy 

when you can’t be taken seriously.

But God do I want my voice to be heard,

and I am going to make you listen.
