Speaking As…

Speaking as a baby

I did not have the words,

Speaking as a child

I’m more interested in the birds,

Speaking as a teenager

again my words were lost,

Speaking as an adult

I tried but suffered a cost.

 

Speaking as myself

I found it became more clear,

Speaking as a mother

I have to speak for someone dear.

 

 

(this was done as a five minute exercise at a poetry workshop with the theme – Speaking As…).
