Not to express 

What you think is right 

Not to say 

What you think is wrong 

Shadowed under the dark cloud 

You live but as dead 

Worried what your words might bring 

Terrified at the though of thoughtfulness 

You stay quiet with a storm within 

Rashness all around 

Fear in the air 

Terror filled in minds 

But fake peace on the face 

Idiots running the show 

And clever hiding behind 

Saneness gone in the bin

Insanity gone rogue 

Fights on amongst ourselves 

And wounds inflicted on us

When will us speak up

And when will we fight back 

When will be break the shackles 

And undo all the wrongs 

When will the cloud go 

And the fear disappear 

When will we live free

Out of this constant fear?

    You have quite hit the nail on the head. I have been dealing with this a lot and reached the point that staying quiet about the wrongs inflicted was no longer an option. They say, “How can you write what you do and show it to the world?” . Because you wouldn’t listen to me the world does. Sometimes you have to face the demons and take back your dignity and let them wallow in their guilt because they knew who I was writing about.

    1. True that and it’s a tuff task to get over one’s fear and battle it down.

    ———I read this today and felt as though this person, who doesn’t know me – knew me. When do we stop pretending everything is okay with someone when it is not. When you have to “keep it light” because someone can’t handle a conversation any deeper than the weather so you can tell them what is really in your head. What kind of relationship is that when you can only put on a face and pretend everything is okay – when it isn’t.
