Mute

Written by: A Rambling Righting Riley - Shauna Riley

Speak up you say, but when I do, I hear anger...

Speak up you say, but when I do, it doesn’t make sense...

Speak up you say, but when I do, it’s the wrong answer...

Speak up you say, but when I do, you twist it around...

Speak up you say, but when I do, you don’t see my side...

Speak up you say, because what I say matters, you want someone with a voice...

Speak up you say, but when I do, it comes out all wrong...

Speak up you say, but when I do, it only makes things worse...

Speak up you say, but when I do, you can’t seem to fathom...

Speak up you say, but when I do, you don’t believe me...

Speak up you say, but when I do, I end up regretting it...

Speak up you say, but my voice you don’t hear, but words are scrambled...

Speak up you say, but this is why I don’t, why I’ve remained mute for years...

Speak up you say, is it really worth it, when it falls on deaf ears...
