EXPRESSIONS Poetry

Unspoken Words

We tender our sores in silence,

we children of a world without conscience,

a difficult undertaking that requires patience

We let go the similes and rhymes

Speaking in metaphors,

we stare at the truth with a blank countenance.

 

We see your shame

We can taste your disgust at our unspoken words

You can’t accept that we are quiet?

You say you can’t be blamed?

It’s not your fault?

You want our pity,

our comfort,

solace,

our stamp of approval,

a confirmation of your helplessness.

 

We’ll be mute

The day we rise,

amen to you.
