Silent

Let them be loud

always speaking their minds

repeating what everyone else says.

Talking nonsense just so others

can hear them

 

We listen but don’t speak,

always saying ‘yes’

but wanting to say ‘no’

We keep to ourselves

always having a plan

doing things unnoticed

wanting to be alone

but not wanting to be

lonely

 

My voice is quiet

but my mind is

L O U D

filled with ideas

and thoughts

carrying me away

like a cloud

 

I’d rather be quiet

in a world that won’t stop talking

than be forced to speak

when all i want

to be is

silent
