TITLE: Don't Silence My Voice

FROM THE DAY I WAS BORN; I STARTED TO DIE BECAUSE YOU TRIED TO SILENCE MY VOICE.
WITHOUT REALIZING IT, EVEN THEN YOU WERE TELLING ME, ďBE QUIET! YOU DONíT HAVE A CHOICE!Ē

THEN WORDS BEGAN TO SPILL FROM MY LIPS, THOUGH FEW AND NOT VERY CONCISE,
I WAS HAPPY TO HEAR THE SOUND OF MY VOICE, BUT IT WAS DROWNED BY ALL THE NOISE.

MAYBE IíM TOO SMALL AND SHOULD WAIT ĎTIL IíM BIGGER TO TRY AND UTTER MY OPINION,
BUT HEY! NEVER MIND MY SIZE; WHAT IíM TRYING TO SAY DOES DESERVE YOUR ATTENTION.

I THINK IíLL WAIT ĎTIL IíM OLD ENOUGH, BY THEN; IíLL BE ABLE TO SILENCE THE CROWD,
IíLL ENTER THE ROOM AND SAY, ďYOUR ATTENTION PLEASE!Ē THIS WILL MAKE BE REAL PROUD.

ďAM I NOT OLD ENOUGH NOW TO SAY WHAT I FEEL?
SO WHY CANíT I GET YOU TO LISTEN?
PLEASE, OH PLEASE! IíVE WAITED MY TURN JUST TO MAKE SOME DECISIONS".

BETTER YET, I SHOULD WAIT UNTIL I BECOME AN ADULT,
BY THEN, MY SIZE SHOULDNíT REALLY MATTER.
I WOULDNíT NEED TO ANNOUNCE MY ARRIVAL; IíLL JUST JOIN IN WITH ALL THE CHATTER.

BUT WAIT A MINUTE! ISNíT THIS WHAT IíVE WAITED ALL MY LIFE TO DO? TO SAY WHATíS ON MY MIND?
IF IT DIDNíT MATTER THEN, MAYBE IT DOESNíT MATTER NOW, IíLL JUST SAVE IT FOR ANOTHER TIME.

MY VOICE, DOES WORK YOU KNOW; BUT I ONLY HEAR IT WHEN IíM ALL ALONE.
ONE OF THESE DAYS, IíLL BUILD UP THE COURAGE, CANíT WAIT! I HOPE ITíS SOON.

YOUR VOICE will be heard loud and clear. God hears-believe me. God hears even when no one else on this earth does-God hears! You're here for a very specific purpose. God is already using you to speak for those who don't think anyone hears. I CAN really relate-believe me.

This is almost a poem! Your feelings came out strongly.
I can't see how it relates to the topic, though.
Have you tried poetry? I think you might do well.
