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.
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.
