Silence (Version 2) - Poem by Kaila George

Life passes by
In silence we breathe
At all the wrongs done
In one singular Life

Silence we are told
Is what will save your life
NEVER tell a soul
Of the torment
In your life

Silently you suffer
At the hands of evil deeds
You cannot even whisper
SOMEONE HELP ME PLEASE

Often you cry
All alone at night
And over the years
You learn to stifle the tears

In silence you watch
Wondering will anyone hear
Or even want to know
About my story of woe

Then slowly it trickles
A teardropp falls
Its time people heard
That silence is no more
Its time to speak up
To share my story of old

    Wow! I can't believe no one else has commented on this! Lol. IT'S INCREDIBLE! ! ! we're taught to suffer in silence, and it takes immense courage to break the gag & tear off their blindfolds. Nicely done! (Report) Reply
