Breaking Free

I sit here
Alone
Unwanted
Betrayed
My tongue longing to speak words
But nothing changes
I'm silenced
What?
Did you hear that?
Everyone is talking
I can’t breathe
I'm choking
I’m dying here
And you all just watch
I sit here
Confused
Still
Quiet
Afraid to say anything
Because we all know
You wouldn’t understand
You point
You laugh
You talk
But you don’t think
You’re killing me
Stop it
It hurts
My tears race down my face
In hopes of finding a happier place
Shh
You hear that?
That’s me
Breaking free
