“Don’t you make a sound!”
“Don't speak a word!”
“Don’t talk about it – to anyone!”
“If you ever say anything...”
“Don’t you dare tell – or else…”
I can’t make any noise or someone will know.
If anyone finds out I will be in big trouble.
They would never believe me.
They would never understand.
I am tongue-tied, gagged, mute, dumb, voiceless,
Unable to utter a thing.
Vocal paralysis has set in.
I may never talk again.
All I hear is:
I learned that lesson well
And obeyed it to the letter!
It is hard to break that habit and taboo.
“Tell me what you like.”
“Does this feel good?”
“Just say what you want.”
“Describe what you are feeling…”
"You must talk about it!"
What I’m FEELING?!?!?!
What I LIKE?!?!?!
What feels GOOD?!?!?!
TALK ABOUT IT?!?!?!
What does that even mean?
I CAN”T SAY…

How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, â€śViolence!â€ť but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....
