SILENCE

I kept silent
For a long time
Even as I knew
This isn’t right…
I learned my lesson
The hard way…
When it’s rotten
You have to speak
You have to shout…
Stand up for what’s right

      Thank you. Written from experience, and I wish I’d learned the lesson sooner.

    Opening my mouth always gets me in trouble… But I do it anyway sometimes😊

      I’ve been so hurt by my silence that I’ve resolved not to do it again. But even there, I have conditions that keep me from totally spilling the beans. When the time comes to speak my piece entirely, it’ll look like an explosion in a chili joint. 😛
