"Around here, however we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." - Walt Disney

Screaming, shouting

Gasping for breath

At the top of my lungs

But still no one hears

Shout it from the rooftops

I fall to my knees

No one can hear the silent scream

My eyes say the words my mouth can't form

Pleading for someone to hear

My only wish

But too afraid to try 

I walk away
