I sit here
My tongue longing to speak words
But nothing changes
I'm silenced
Did you hear that?
Everyone is talking
I can’t breathe
I'm choking
I’m dying here
And you all just watch
I sit here
Afraid to say anything
Because we all know
You wouldn’t understand
You point
You laugh
You talk
But you don’t think
You’re killing me
Stop it
It hurts
My tears race down my face
In hopes of finding a happier place
You hear that?
That’s me
Breaking free
