Are you listening?

Growing up 

I always had so much to say

but no one would listen 

no would listen to the troubles of a child 

because no one belived a child had troubles

so I kept quite 

I "stayed in a child's place" 

but I knew I wasn't alone 

I wasn't the only child that was always being silenced 

so I wrote about it 

every problem, trial, situation, circumstance 

so if by chance

someone read what I wrote 

and felt some ounce of relief 

The silence would be worth it

so I write for everyone...

including myself...

and to all the people who kept me silent I ask you now...

are you listening?

i know what it feels like to not have people listen when you need that someone the most. 

Need to talk?
