My People (Always Screaming To Be Heard)

We enter
This world
With a primal cry
A scream
To be seen
That gets lost
Far too often
When we enter
The mainstream
When we
Are taught
To be like
All others
Instead of
To be ourselves
When we
Are introduced
To the harmful
Yet popular
Of conformity
And some
Give in
To such
A ridiculous idea
With an ease
That makes me queasy
Others though
Are a bit lucky
They see
The insanity
And refuse
To give into it
They are the ones
Who in a sense
Never truly
Stop screaming
And instead
They insist
On being heard
Those people
Yes they are
My people
