The Mute - Poem by Davina Teeling
She walked into the classroom, and seen the stares.
Every one around her moving their chairs.
What a disease they say.
What a pain she had inside.
The mute with words that no one could hear.
The mute with no voice to share.
She could still feel the pain, hear the pain, and see the pain.
This wonderful girl so alone and confused.
Born without a voice.
Born with so many words to say.
One day her life came to a tragic end.
The pain she enoured made her change her self.
Medical procedure to get a voicebox.
Some thing went wrong, so very wrong.
Her throat swelled and calappsed.
came to the end of her life.
This mute was a girl.
Only a 16 year old girl.
A girl who had a name.
A name so beautiful, her name Samyra Bendkins.
A loss to many but little did she know that.
A note the found in her room.
With letters that spelled...
'Alone I remain, until the moment I can speak. So many days I've tryed to let my voice be heard. And yet the words I've said were only in my head. Tomorrow is the day it will all change. This is to all the people who thought I needed a change. I'm changing myself for you, so you can see I too have words to speak.'
That letter was written only a day before.
A day before she passed.
R.I.P Samyra Bendkins. From hearts all around the world.
