How many times have you tried to "fix" her
Without seeing the reason behind her silence?
You've never been aware of the fact
That her mind is anything but quiet.
There's a war going on that nobody sees-
Her thoughts are too wild to confine with words,
While everyone's yelling, "Speak up, please!"
She struggles to find what is "right" to say;
What others understand she fails to display.
Why don't they help her through this?
They put her down instead;
Sometimes the most important things
Are better left unsaid.
