Silence

Silence


Depression

What freedom of expression?

Anxiety and panic

Hidden with a fake pic

Endless tears

Caused by the fears

of the judgement of society

 

Everything feels hopeless

Emotionless

What is sleep?

It’s been a week since my eyes have met the darkness that is my eyelids

Lost 10 pounds in less than 10 days

Awaiting the day I cease to exist

 

Hush little baby don’t you cry, say not a word and you’ll be alright

 

Suicide

From a dark side

Thoughts of seeing the sun

makes you want to run

Pills and blades

Dreams of overdose

and the end of your days

 

Everything feels hopeless

Emotionless

What is sleep?

It’s been a week since my eyes have met the darkness that is my eyelids

Lost 10 pounds in less than 10 days

Awaiting the day I cease to exist

 

Our eyes are open

Yet blind to all that is painful

Show me the pretty so that I can block all that is ugly

Shield my ears with the noise that is

Social media, TV, music, and gossip

So that I will not have to listen to the cries of my classmates pleading for help

 

God gave me a mouth to be the voice

for my brothers and my sisters

But when I open my mouth all that is heard is silence

and when I open my eyes all that I see is a world worth changing

 

Give me glasses and a pair of hearing aids

Let me view my world as it is

Turn off the distractions

Listen to the whimpers of the broken hearts across the room

The screams inside the minds of those who are demanded to shut up

 

And this time when I open my mouth I will speak and I will never stop.
