Questioning or speaking out would never be taken lightly
So I learned to silence all the pains I felt; and tried not ever to cry
Living in such a world of fear caused my childhood to pass me by
I didnt ever think about whether being beat was wrong or right
I wasnt ever allowed friends around to shed on me some light
I became a silent child in school who others labeled as "really shy"
But no one ever tried to help or took time to ask me "why"
Being brought up in the never question land didnt prepare me for
What would retraumatize me again leaving me so wounded sore
A cycle of being afraid to speak has brought me down through time
But I have begun a new healing stage even as I write this rhyme.
