Truth Over Harmony

by Lyn Patterson

Truth Over Harmony

My tongue was not made
square nor sweet for
contentment nor comfort.

The creator who sculpted me
(in her image)
has no regard for your palette.


Lyn Patterson

Lyn is a deeply invigorated poet who delves into the themes of identity, equity, overcoming trauma, accepting your wild and learning to listen to your intuition. She is a 31-year-old poet, dancer, and educator originally from Seattle, Washington. She currently travels full time which has allowed her to observe many great cities and watch the small phenomena of American life which can be similar but more importantly nuanced in their differences. Lyn is specifically inspired to write about those who are marginalized in our society, as a means of empowering future generations with their stories.
