Do not be angry when
I speak the truth, but
I bite my tongue more
often than I should to
keep peace I am yet to feel.

My frustration mirrors in your
eyes, as words linger in
my throat but you refuse
to notice. Blind to cruel
treatments and deaf to logical reason.

“Learn to live!” You scream
as I surrender to life
in silence, but the honest
truth will rear its ugly
head and it shall being again!
