Unvoiced

Snuffed out
Like the flame
That once burned so brightly
So hot
So intense
She no longer has it in her
That fire
That heat
To make herself heard
And held
She now sits silenced
Saddened
She let it happen
Her voice
Snuffed out —————
Like the flame
She once burned so brightly.

Inhibited

It’s in her eyes
The heartbreak it grows
It’s in her tears
The anger it shows
She no longer screams
Furious with rage
The beast inside
Subdued and caged
She longs for her voice
To be heard and held
But for now she whimpers
Words trapped, welled.

The tree, she grows
Branches out
Transforms
Uninhibited by space
Free to choose
She molds her shape
Her desire
Leaves or cones, in time
They darken and fall
But no less is she
Beautiful
Dynamic
In truth
She stands strong
Unyielding.
