A Poem by Alice Walker

"Why?" That seems like the question people often ask. But what if you heard the questions often asked by someone who nearly always forgotten. How would you react?

Can you hear me?
Can you see me?
Why can't anyone hear me?
Why can't anyone see me?
Is it because I love another girl?
Is it because I won't form to the standards?
Tell me why you can't stand to hear me.
Tell me why you can't stand to see me.
I don't really care though.
I just want to know why.
Why do you try not to hear me?
Why do you try not to see me?
Just tell me-
