I don't know
If I can stand it
Any longer.

My voice,
My opinion,
starys trapped within
this fragil body.

If I do not speak soon
I shall surely parish.

My tounge is begining to losen
The words flow slightly easier.
Many times I am silent still
Though now I think,
I can bare it.

I agree. It is very . . . quiet. Just one tip is that I read an article written by the editor of the children's magazine "Cricket" and it said that spelling can affect the writing's legibility to be published, so I'm just saying keep that in mind. I mean, I think this is certainly good enough to get published, but editors don't like to make all those corrections. : ) Overall it was beautiful.

Hey, I was browsing Teen Ink and I came across your poem. I like how the poem is almost--but not quite--lyrical. This truly brought the "silence" to life. Great job :)
