Many people can’t fathom

my language

or why I communicate

in a manner different

than them.

They fear oddity,

panicking at the individual

who will violate

the common order

regulated by humanity.

With cruel language

they brutally attack

anyone

who will defy

their law.

And I fear the ridicule

that will prevail

if I emerge from behind

the vocabulary that I need to hide

my stupid impediment.
