I have something to say. Something that you may not want to hear. Something that scares me. Something that I have a hard time admitting. But I can’t say it. I just can’t. It’s just too difficult. Too embarrassing. Too humiliating. It’s not that I can’t find the words. It’s not that I am speechless. It’s just that once I say these words aloud You will see me as a I am. And you will never be able to unsee that sight. And so, I hold this truth inside of me. And so, I choose silence.
