the girl has gone mute

the girl has gone mute

words no longer at the tip of her tongue

stolen by those who refuse to listen

blown away by the ferocious wind


she struggles

trying to prove her point

she knows it’s important

that she shouldn’t give up


you need to conform

they say

justify your choices

they say


that’s wrong

ringing from ear to ear

her anger has built up

and she wants so desperately to fight back


but she struggles

unsure of when to let go

is it worth it?

she asks
