Speak - Poem by Cami Cates

The world around
Is looking bleak
I cannot move
I cannot speak

My body is broken
But no one knows
They look at me
Down their nose

My throat is burning
Wishing to free
The secret locked
So deep in me

But my throat is locked
And head held low
It must remain
That no one know

My secret inside
Is my shame
And I feel
I am to blame

I see the monster
That caused my pain
It meets my eye
And my face drains

It traps me
Against the wall
And I stand limp
Like a doll

It came back
To repeat the deed
Then something snapped
And I was freed

I fought back
Against the thing
Taking pleasure
In the fear I bring

My secret free
No longer meek
I smile knowing
I learned to speak.
