What Do You Have

What do you have
to say for yourself,
you who are by design
the smallest, the least,
the worst of all of us,
daring to stand up,
daring to present,
daring to pretend
you are something
you are not,
are something more
than you must be,
are something we all
should have been,
had we not forgotten
our blood,
our voices,
ourselves.

Go ahead -- say something. Anything.
