Underestimated
  Unknown
    Underappreciated


Afraid to shout out my glow
  Let it radiate into your orbit
    Let it calm the churning waters of your halo


Afraid to walk into the room where it happens
  Where eyes will rake my body
    Stopping at my shoulders where my incompetence lies as a dead giveaway


Underserved
  Unbalanced
    Undernourished


Clay-shaped dreams molded from fingers that are too sure of themselves
  Dents line my vision of the future
    The pestle that smoothes this chaotic progress has tilted on its axis
      The warm touch of the sculptor has turned to rigamortis


Underwhelmed
  Unhinged
    Unknowingly revolutionary


My hand has been left dangling for too long
  My knocks at the entrance of access have been ignored
    My voice has cracked at my frustration and let my credibility fall


Unnoticed
  Underqualified
    Unnatural


The footsteps to the temple of capital have echoed away in their retreat
  And whispered around to the side door with my conspirators
    The hushed laughter and tears have been hiding us from our true potential
As we pretend we don’t exist
  As our words have been choked out of us
     Replaced w credibility akin to destruction


Unabashed
  Unnerved
    Under no one


Why wait for the revolution when it’s been waiting for us to take the first step?
