Here's a short poem about my accent and my concern of reception.
Do you hear me speak beneath the silence?
My accent makes me sound like I’m full of violence
Northern husky firm and deep
Listen to the words please don’t weep

And at the very least you can appreciate my dialect
At least that’s what I might find in retrospect.
As I speak an eclectic mix of spoken word
Think how these lyrics sound different once they are heard.
