Voices - Poem by Karen Montegrande

A man can make you feel safe,
When you hear his voice
It's like he'll fight the whole world for you,
Comfort you and do the best he can do just to guard you,
Assure you that he'll always be there for you,

A woman can sometimes make you feel uneasy,
As to what people hear or see,
Women uses their mouth as a weapon to win,
It's like 'the mouth is sharper than the sword'
But no matter how many battles she Wins or Lose,
With her hands she'll care for you, Touch your soul and heal you,
That's the best she can do,

Voices are our entity,
That digs the abyss of our not so perfect humanity,
A foundation of what made us who we are,
Actually..a voice is a message to set each of our souls free
Free to utter reality, Free to define everybody be it a Man or a Woman,
Our voices shouts out the differences between gender and sexuality,
Our voices are what builds each of our identity towards everybody.
That's what a voice is for me.
