Melodie Hsiao, Grade 6
They SLAM the door and DIMINISH my bubble of hope
Every time I speak I am BURNT down and turned into ashes
They TURN DOWN my words, They IGNORE ME and KNOCK ME DOWN
Why don’t they listen to me?
Or is it just because of my
gender, age, or race?
My voice MATTERS like everyone else’s
I shouldn’t be UNHEARD
Every voice DESERVES a CHANCE to be HEARD
