“They’ll Hear Me”

there’s so much excitement about moving
and then there’re things
that make me sigh

like going to new places
finding things funny
and laughing

if only it was subtle
if only I didn’t stand out
but I do

with my flags
with my testimony
with my laugh

most everyone likes it
but for those who don’t
I shut down

I can’t even stop it
I hear their comments
and feel laughter leave

and once it’s gone
I’m not sure how
to get it back


new places
new laughter
new outbursts

same me
