Silenced
by the majority
who believe
in the authority's
right to use
our children
for what ever
they can think of
While We
just sit silent
believing
what is written
on the news

The Quiet before the Storm

I am Silenced too young to have a say.
Or at least that's what THEY say.

A young girl crying in the corner, feeling all alone because no one knows what exactly to do. This feeling its gotten old to her but the heart break, stress and custody its all new.


Inheriting traits from each of her "Loving" parents she wonders (Am I a whore?), (Am I a good for nothing?) as they argue on the phone
She covers her ears and for every scream and name her heart it gets a little colder and in every instant, turns a little more distant.


Oh young girl if you only knew that you're not all alone, your not the only one and that this turmoil will eventually pass will I see you smile?

Refused to Be Silenced

Be quiet because you do not know what you are saying.
It is like someone constantly telling you to stop praying
To a god that you believe in. Do not be silenced by those
Who say that you cannot voice your opinion. You rose
To the occasion. You were taught to speak your mind
Because that is how you were raised. You cannot bind
Your ideas and beliefs to someone else. Do not let
Others to tell you to be quiet because it is a threat
To society and what you have to say does not matter.
Do not be afraid to speak and let your voice splatter
Against the world that is too black and white. You are
Allowed to voice your concerns. Do not let the scar
On your windpipes and the tape over your mouth
Stop you from screaming or getting knocked out.
So no, I will not be silenced and neither should you
Because there are still too way many of us who
Do not have a voice or cannot have a voice.
They have every limited opinion and choice.

Voiceless

Here comes the silence
Voiceless violence
Festering pilot in control
Agitation, aggravation
Burning through my soul
Never sing, never cry
Never say whatís on my mind
Sincerely,
Silence

Silencing The Truth


You have the right to remain silent

WHY?

WTF?

I plead the Fifth Amendment

WHY?

WTF?

I refuse to answer any questions

WHY?

WTF?

No Comment, No Comment, No Comment

WTF?

Who comes up with this shit?
Why would anyone remain silent?
Especially if they are innocent
Itís only the guilty that hide this way
The stupid guilty that are not good liars
Canít keep their story straight under cross examination
Too weak minded to stand up and shout your answers clearly
All you are really being asked to do is tell the bloody truth
But you canít because then they will see you are guilty
An accessory after, during and before the crime
In my world if you pled the fifth
You would get the same jail
Time as the crime committed
Regardless of who did it
Twenty five years for
Pleading the fifth
Theyíd talk then
Like twittering
Stool pigeons

Lip Disservice †


Gauze in the throat
holding hostage...
stifled screams
reductions invade
with obstructions
deconstructing
& gagging my esteem

Lips faltering
limp scraps of felt flail
failing
flimsy and numb
Anxiety drums...
like Medusa optics
spying as I'm stunned
Gripping this rip
caught in my taught
constricted - restricted
lungs
Panic's bass chords - fevered - strum...

Manacles beset my tongue


***
Social anxiety is a CUNT.

                 SILENCED

My glottis strived to
Prove it's stand.
But was weighed down
By his indifference.
Even my lips hops to cope,
But his eyes wouldn't them.

He doesn't seem to give an attention:
Even my courage,he'd silenced.

Maybe i'll pick my way.
