Silence

They tell us not to stay silent,

but when we talk

We are asked, if we could have done something different.

We are asked, what we did to incite.

We are asked, why we took so long to speak up.

We are told, to not let it bother us.

We are told, to rise above it.

We are told, to just ignore it.

They tell us not to stay silent,

but when we talk

but when we stay silent

we are Judged.
