I Have No Wings

I have no wings to fly, she said
Nor any legs to walk
And if I pass they close their eyes
Ignore me when I talk
I have no home to call my own
No place where I am safe
If you speak truth you stand alone
Unheeded in your grief
I may be just a wingless bird
Faced by a crocodile
But still they cannot stop my words
Nor kill me with their smile
