If you can help

You discovered
you can talk to animals
big cats, a jaguar
you can be yourself
without stutter.

You wanted to tell
other children
what you went through
a broken child,
misunderstood.

You wrote a book
to give them a voice
to express what’s inside them
pain, fear, sadness.
They didn’t have
to stutter or be afraid.
