Of Pride and Prejudice

You thought me quiet

And I wonder why

coz I was always loud, very loud!

a trombone playing incessantly in my head

a thousand loudspeakers

booming in my chest.

You thought me dumb

yet never have I shut my mouth;

Words

I use them well

sometimes to tell

sometimes to yell.

You thought me insignificant

And turned away

While a part of you

Holds me close

silent in your bones.

You chaffed me

You looked me down

But

I

Proud not yet prejudiced

Value you

Your follies and foibles

And will do so for ever.

Becoz

I

See

Beyond perceptions

I

See

You

Beyond myself.

Wait! did you just call me blind?
