Silence 15/100

The silence is deafening

when they come for you at a supposed safe place.

with their cruel words and their destructive attacks.

They manage to tear you apart, piece by piece,

both physically and mentally.

Everyone around watches with pity in their eyes

yet they never stand to speak on your behalf to help.

They dare not break the silence.

The silence is deafening

when he is feeling and sizing you up

like a prized hide he hunted down on a trip.

You can feel your own soul decay and

your heart wither like a flower in winter.

Everyone can see the pleas for help in your eyes,

but they just ignore those pleas, too scared to speak.

They dare not break the silence.

The silence is deafening

when your demons tear at your soul and heart,

threatening to snuff the life out of you by your own hand.

You watch the love for life die in your eyes

and your world turn to a grey wasteland of emptiness.

Everyone knows that you are dying on the inside,

but they pretend not to notice or that it’s not real.

They dare not break the silence.

The silence is deafening

when you are told you are a monster

for something beyond your own control.

You feel like an abomination to humanity

and you hide your true self just to fit in amongst the sheep.

Everyone watches you turn into someone you’re not,

but they turn a blind eye to your distress and agony.

They dare not break the silence.

The silence is deafening

when all you need is some help or some kindness.

Speaking out is not always the most popular move,

but it is often the right and needed one, the route less taken.

Everyone will denounce and treat you like a traitor against your own,

but you will be the instigator of change and a hope to the broken,

if you break the silence.
