I’m Going To Raise My Hand Today

By Leena Taylor


I swear to god I’m going to raise my hand today

With the courage of the demi god Hercules and the reflexes of Mercury

I’m going to put my hand in the air and speak

I’m going to say words

Not just any words intelligent words

I’m going to formulate ideas no one has thought of

I’m going to blow the minds of scholars and philosophers alike

Today at 1:30 in my Asian philosophy class I’m changing the world

When I finally raise my hand and say..

Wait what will I say….

Ah fuck it I’ll raise my hand another day
