Regina Puckett

Once I thought I had a choice

Until I tried using my voice

But then the only thing came out

Was a weak cry and muffled shout

And all of the bystanders just stared

As if the world was simply unprepared

To hear my few words of wisdom

But I refuse to stay in this prison

I won’t be silenced or locked away

I have too much to contribute and say
