Why are you silent on this that matters most?
Fear of inflicting pain, a reason for many
Yet with you it’s something different
That keeps your lips silent.

Pictures and words
Talking unheard
Silence still reigns
Denial of pain

Lack of acknowledgement
Not seen as existing
Remaining veiled and hidden
To not cause you shame

Shame and embarrassment
Greater than pain
It binds you to silence
There you remain

Scrupulous to appear
Standing tall and strong
Hidden tears and sorrow
Grief an unsung song
