Silenced

Self

Way Too Long

Words &

Feelings

Kept

Inside

Hidden

Silenced

Self

Weighed

Down By

The Heavy

Burden

Created

Chaos

Inside

Silenced

Self

Swallowed-Up

Suppressed

Sorrow

Unable to

Comprehend

Needs

Unmet

Silenced

Self

Searching for

Love

Blurring

Boundaries

Between

Self &

Other’s

Feelings

Unable to

Untangle

Other’s

Feelings &

One’s Own

Silenced

Self

Played

The Game of

Compromise

Promising

Self

One Day

To Feel

Something

Inside

Self

Waiting for

The Moment to

Arrive

Though

The Day

Never

Seemed to

Come

Silenced

Self

Spent

A Lifetime

Searching For

The Moment to

Show-Up

Exhausted &

Broken-Down &

Alone

Decided

Not To

Wait

Anymore

Silenced

Self

Whimpered

Encased in

Fear

Whispering

The Roar of

Screams

Demanding to

BE

Heard &

Seen

Silenced

Self

Chose

Self &

Honoured

The Voice

Muffled

Inside

Provided

Safe Sanctuary

Inviting

The Words to

Take on

Sound

Listened &

Heard

Past Stories

Entangled

Feelings

Locked-Up

Giving

Permission for

The Volt to

Unlock

Silenced

Self

surrendered

Intentionally

Choosing to

Expose &

Excavate

The Hidden &

Transend

The Stuck

Pain into

Spectrum of

Feelings

Silenced

Self

Still

Learning to

Trust

Self
