I do not know how to be quiet.

It has never been my way.

Silence!

If it needs to be said,

Be sure, I will be the one to say it.

Silence!

I have spoken up for others.

For myself, too.

Silence!

Why are the others quiet?

Have they no story to tell?

Silence!

Surely there must be something to tell.

Everyone has had their hell.

Silence!

I guess, maybe, the words evade them.

Or they are too busy to tell.

Silence!

Oh wait, I hear it,

“What will society say?”

Silence! Silence!

I will still have my say,

I do not care what they think.

Silence! Silence! Silence!

Someone needs to hear my story,

I will not be selfish about it.

*silence*

If we share our stories,

We support, learn and grow.

*silence*
