Treasure Island

Melissa Koeman

(29-01-1987 / Hoorn/the Netherlands)

Silence is golden?

Again hurt by words
Stupid words… that didn’t make sense
Maybe I should’ve thought: whatever, I don’t care
But I couldn’t because in fact it did hurt me like hell
Those words broke my heart
Why do people which I care about and love say such things?
Saying things without thinking first?
If only they knew the truth about me….
I know they would keep their mouth shut then
At least I know now how they really feel about it
But why was I again such a hypocrite for laughing along
and not saying anything?
Should I be silent?
Silence is golden… some say…
But against what price?

    i've discovered that when you hurt others and vice versus with
    words it is your Ego's disire to prove what shouldn't/doesn't
    need proving.
    Just be yourself like in my poem
    'Be Proud of who you are'
    Well written.

    what a wonderful poem
    filled with insight
    and deep searching
    of how to live in the world
    the question-
    to be true to your true self
    or go along with the crowd
    of course
    in the end
    only one choice
    staying true to
    who you
    really are (Report) Reply
