Can I?

Poem By Babalwa Mbalula

can i scream and not be heard?
can i cry and hope that no-one hears my sobs?
i'm trapped in this person
i don't wanna be
i hate this feeling
i hate not being able to express
the person i am
some think i'm crazy
some think i'm weird
why won't they let me be?
can i go mad even if it's just for five seconds
can i?

I was hurting
Letting some of the pain go
