"Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world."
-Marilyn Monroe


Silent genius
Behind a whisper, behind a door
So secretly covered, as to hide her fate…
Her desire.
To give them a voice.
As they cannot speak themselves
Too weak,
too self conscious
Always faltering
In themselves
Why do we ignore?
They need their voice,
Their time to shine.
Be brave.
Be careful.
Shine.
