The Slam: Slammables


by queenie_flower, breaking two years of silence

I'd introduce myself to you

But with what words?

How should I say who I am

To people who I will never see

Never hear their voices

Never know any name other than that they have given themselves.

Does it even matter how I look to you

Unless I don't like my reflection?

Does it matter how brilliant I can be

If you will never hear my jokes in person 

Or get my advice on any small thing

(And punctuation, while small, doesn't count)

Does it matter to you what people think of me,

Unless it causes me pain?

Does it matter to you my identity

Unless someone doesn't think it's right?

If I'm accepted everywhere else

Will you still accept me?
