Her accent

Her accent is a thing of beauty
Like classical music from ancient Greece
If you listen to her talking
You’d think you were in a stately home

But she changes her accent because of prejudice
Because of people who associate it with privilege
Even though she is poor and overworked
They try to silence her beautiful speech

In any accent, there is beauty of sound
It depends entirely upon the heart of who speaks
All that matters is that you speak with good heart
Then you will outreach the tone-deaf and their envy

She lives in a bed-sit and she works like a slave
She’s the child of wealth, education and privilege

Their knowledge gave her nothing
Without being loved it is all for nothing

But once you fall out of the nest
It’s hard to get back in

But still I hear her beautiful accent
Not of an actress at the top
Not of a princess at a ball
But of a warrior queen
That sings like a nightingale

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
