This is Not a World that Honors the Mute

This is not a world that honors the mute

Or pays them dearly for their gifts

Speak Up

So I can hear you

Speak Up

So I can see you

Speak Up

So I can have the comfort

Of Knowing

Mine is not the only voice

My vision, not the only one

So I can be reminded

That all the wisdom of the ages is available to me

Without needing to be contained within my own limits.
