speak not, and be heard.

a silent soul.

born with the gift of prose.

passionately outspoken, yet mute concurrently.

my soul speaks what my mouth cannot.

confessed by the pen, written in stone.

such a powerful thing the written word.

giving the unvoiced a chance to be heard.

to remain silent, all the while telling the world.

so i can stay a silent soul.

can you hear me now?

The author's comments:
Writing is such an important thing. So many people dont like doing it, but i think, expressing yourself trhough words is one of the greatest freedoms we have in America.
