Just Because I'm Quiet

Just because I’m quiet
Doesn’t mean I won’t smile
Doesn’t mean I don’t have an opinion
Doesn’t mean I don’t have a personality

Just because I’m quiet
Doesn’t mean I’m abused
Doesn’t mean I’m not smart
Doesn’t mean I’m depressed

Just because I’m quiet
Doesn’t mean I’m not fun to be with
Doesn’t mean I don’t have friends
Just because I’m quiet

What if quiet people understand more things?
What if quiet people hear things that the rest of the world cannot hear?
Does the world want to hear?
Can anyone hear?

What would it take for you to acknowledge me for who I am?
A silent second?
Listen
Listen to the silence
Do you understand?
I think, if you try hard enough, you can.
