Lurk in Silence

They watch, they sit in silence . . . 

still broken bits

no speech

. . .  from their lips

no "thanks"

not even an emoji kiss

it breaks me


you "heard me," saw my words

why not? 

why - do - I?

do I not deserve?

does it hurt to forgive

& list

those things still trapped inside you

as you peak & as you ponder

you haven't; 

you don't persist

I speak to all those lurking

watching behind the scenes

the ones I reach out to

but still. . . and yet

I'm mean?

Who told you not to speak

that silence is your speech

that meek and minimal words

the voice of the unheard?

[Does my sassiness upset you?

Why are you beset with gloom?

'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells

Pumping in my living room]

~  Maya Angelou - Still I rise

This piece is to help those understand that no one is perfect, everyone makes mistakes . . . 

But if you never express your hurt, what right do you have to consciously dismiss the love of others, their vulnerability to you . . . their accountability and most importantly,

the time they cared & inspired YOU. 

You don't win by your silence.

You win by connecting to your heart, your true self. 

That's confidence!

hate me

rate me

curse me

stare -

dig holes deeper

with desperate glares

make fun

move on

miss me no more

wait and watch

admire me . . . score!

fake the funk 

you silent ones

hold the gun

shoot & run

black me

black one

black girl power

still standing strong

no "give up" hour

For those who feel like I feel sometimes . . . ignored & dismissed

I challenge you to do thee most difficult thing . . . 

continue to spread your LIGHT & your LOVE

accepted or not
