FREE WRITING

13
i am young.
my brain is changing,
putty in the hands of those who
would seek to mould it,
the same shape as every other person
who passed them by on the narrow streets of life.

i am young.
and i always find myself among
those who are older, or louder,
better
whose voices reach the corners of the rooms
and rebound back to them.
my friends.

i am young,
and i can't speak to strangers.
i can't read speeches.
my voice is a tangled octopus of sentences,
caught in my throat.

i am young,
and i have opinions.
i will always have these opinions.

it is not easy for me to speak.
thank you for respecting my silence.

    how are you, dear? checking up on you because i just want to remind you that you did absolutely nothing wrong. it saddens me that the people who were gaslighting you and wanting you to change your views or stop expressing them by using their friendship with you against you caused you to take such a hiatus. stay safe, okay?

    re: of course, dear! i must admit that i was quite upset earlier at the prospect of you feeling so down about something that i saw absolutely no fault with. and if someone did find a fault with it, just know you do have people here to back you up. stay safe, okay? and p.s. i literally have the same thing (but more aggressive) in my message to readers. if someone had a problem with yours, they should have a problem with me, too.
