Verbal Repression

We ache to speak

Needing our voice to be heard

Our minds wanting to be vocalized

Too often we are silenced

The worst is when the oppressor is us

We censor ourselves instead of setting us free

Don’t listen to the crowds who try to control our voice

We second-guess what we say

In doubting ourselves, our moment passes

Better to speak your mind off the top of your head

Then take the time to find the right words

In which we lose the meaning of our message

True words aren’t grammarly correct

Rather brutally honest

Speak brutal words, don’t bite your tongue

Let your words bite the listener

Don’t whisper but yell

Make silence absent from your speech

Be heard, never repress your voice

Censored words are the messages you were never meant to say

Say what you meant too
