Silent


I wanted to say something but I had no voice,
I wanted to make changes but I had no choice.

I wanted to answer questions that never came.
I felt that I was playing a ridiculous game.

I wanted to right all that was wrong,
but realized I wasn't that strong.

I wanted to fight back against enemies dear,
but I lost the battle when I gave in to my fear.

In disbelief I watched my life fall apart.
I was given words of wisdom, "make a new start".

I was devastated for all that I had lost,
but to take a stand would have too high a cost.

I wanted to to tell what I knew and could prove,
but my hands were tied, I couldn't move.

With all of the emotion that built up in me,
I realized that I must resentfully be...
silent.
