Resistance

Silence

is the boon companion

of shame

I am tired

so very

very tired

of silence

of shame

weighing me down

pulling at

my shoulders

dragging me

to my knees

 

I will not feed them anymore

I reject

silence

I reject

shame

They do not serve me

In this brave and reckless life

  1. guilt = i did wrong. shame = “i” am “wrong”. so much wrong with that in and of itself. wrong is a relative, dualistic term. linking shame and silence is valid. those who harm depend on both from the harmed. i like you boxing the ears of those legacies!
