"Shut up."

A contradictory message.

Home I'm told to shut up.

School I'm told to speak up.

Church I was told to speak up,

But now I'm told to shut up.


I never seem to know

When the time is right

To speak

Or be quiet.

When the teacher is talking,

My lips are sealed.

When other people are speaking,

What do I do?


Interrupt,

I'm rude.

Don't interrupt,

And I'm not heard.
