Silence

By Shayla S

 

Silence

When you’re scared

But if you speak, you’ll be hurt

 

Defenseless

When you are being treated badly

But you can’t fight back

 

Muteness

Not being able to share your opinion

And if you try, you’ll be punished

 

Passiveness

Having your food and water taken away

But talking won’t get it back

 

Deadened

Not being able to get an education

So you don’t know what to say or how to save yourself

 

Loneliness

When you’re alone

And you don’t have anyone you trust

 

Noiselessness

When you scream in a crowded room

But no one can here you

 

Hopeless

When you wish for things

But have no possible way for those things to ever happen

 

Stillness

When you are regarded as a breathing, seeing, moving human

But you can’t share your life with others

 

Sullenness

When the faces you see, have no connection to you

They’re only statues that you used to know

 

Closemouthed

When the words you can say

Don’t have a meaning

 

But the time we take

To wake people up

Makes a big step towards deleting these things

People will have voices

The words they say will turn into actions

And those actions will turn into

 

A better future
