HUSHED VOICE

HUSHED VOICE

I am speaking loud, yet no one can hear me

Shouting at the top of my voice but the silence is way too deafening, it swallowed it

All the voices in my head are screaming for freedom

I wish I could let them all out

I wish I could stop giving a fuck

But bottled feelings turned my worst habit

I find a companion in silence

I recoil every time they wanted a reaction

It's better than fighting

Just like they wanted

An average thinker

An average dreamer

Now I have had Enough

Either haunt or be haunted

It's between them and me

It's for survival

Tired of crushed dreams

Hushed voices

It's about time I let them know

The fear of being average turned me into a rebel

I became the opposite of what they wanted

Just like the actress in their nightmares

My body screams fire

Tell them I'm a voice not to be silenced

A girl not to be toyed with

It's a battle for freedom

I will fight tooth & nails till I get it

No longer a hushed voice

A Girl in Thought
