The silence haunted me

It wasn’t my choice

Its not like my words wouldn’t come out

They came out and every single word was broken in half or twisted into a different meaning

I spoke but what lingered was never my truth

The so called warriors that silenced me were the same ones that silenced themselves

In the name of tradition

They even dare call it love

In times like these

There is only one thing to do

Step away

So that when I speak

My words won’t reach them

And they’ll never get the chance to twist my truth ever again
