Speak your mind

voice mono toned, deaf to all ear.

unable to relent nor express deep fear

controlled by all sides of other people expressions

able to listen but unable to be heard

words struggle to escape the mind 

unable to retaliate the opinions of others

everything seems in vein to persuade

as the voice inside comes clear

the voices of others dims its light

unable to be heard but forever listening
