Someone needed to speak up.

The lack of words spoken
for those who need them most
tend to surprise the ones who don't.

So, when actions start to speak
louder and louder and louder,
to a very sharp point-

how can we be surprised
if the trigger gets pulled
because no one spoke up?

You can say
"It's nobodies fault."

But you CANNOT tell me
you never noticed a change
and then refused to use your voice.

Because even I'm guilty of that.

Next time, I won't put up with it.

Took a handful of pills this morning
it's my daily routine.

You know I do it
to keep my mind
nice and clean.

It speaks a lot for my self-esteem
when speaking for myself
starts to come to life

and I'm no longer curled in corners
with my body bending to fit.

I left that room
and just walked away.
