I've been unable to

Think

Properly


I've been screaming

And yelling

For years

Unheard


That I've grown silent


I'm screaming in my head

So loud

That my body freezes

And my words are scrambled

With hesitation between speeches

Made to freeze a bullet

Mid air

To keep from taking

My air

I just can't breathe


I've been unable to

Think

Properly


You see

I want you

To see

Me

To hear

Me

To Feel

Me

And know

Why

I've been unable to

Think

Properly


To hear the sound of a gun blaring

In the night

Is their lullaby

And is our nightmare

To hear the sound of cries and shouts

In the day

Is their bird songs

And our alarm clock

To hear the Sound of and orange turd

On the screen

Is their entertainment

And our terror


To hear the sound of a body drop on cement

Is their cue for silence

And our daily mourn


My thoughts

Are faded

Dragging my emotions around in a cloud of confusion


What is right

What is wrong

What they say

We must stay

They are right

We are wrong

What we say

Isn't safe


But no

There is no right

Only wrong

What they say

Is all shit

They are wrong

We are strong

What we say

Keeps us sane


So hear this

Because I've been unable to

Live

Properly
