some may think it is sufficient to be heard

except that isn't all there is

now is it?

you hear me

don't you mom?

but what matters is not the hearing

but the listening

and you

you

you just

DO

NOT

LISTEN

please

roll your eyes at me

one more time

please

tell me i don't know what i'm saying

one more time

you say i am a child

but yet you know what i've gone through

what this family has gone through

do you think i am truly still a child?

with my intelligence

with the grades i pull in and the connections i make

do you think i truly do no research on the topics i speak on?

with my mental state

with my mistrust and paranoia

do you really think i take things at face value?

no nO NO I DO NOT

but you

so wrapped up in your ignorance and your hatred

you

who are blinded by your upbringing and the life you've grown accustomed to

YOU are the one who lets the media brainwash you

YOU are the one who knows not what she speaks of

it is YOU who needs to reconsider your sources and viewpoints

who needs to take a step back

to pull off the blindfold

take your hands from your ears

and REALIZE

that sometimes

your daughter is right

your little girl needs to be listened to

and not just heard
