In our own voice

Publishing original works by writers with a disability, mental illness or who are deaf.


By  Shanygne Davis

I am beaten by the potent hammer of society,
warped and wound into a pleasing trinket,
easy on rose-water eyes,
forever steeped in ambitions and dreams,
yet I am just gilded.

One small crack in the glistening shell and I’ve lose all value,
The glorified mend that promised me a shine as bright as silver,
suddenly nothing but a heavy varnish to shroud my oddities.
I am irregular,
I am you,
and we are nothing more than cast-offs that didn’t hold our mold.

  1. Greetings from Carolina! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the info you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, great site!
