I was born with a voice
and still,
I canΒ΄t make a noise.

It is my fault
that I am still
rubbing salt
into the wound,
getting quieter
and quieter
with every day
that passes.

Which is why,
I am now lying
in my bed
at 12:23 AM
feeling the light of my laptop
burning through my eyes.

Being quiet;
leaves me
with so much
on my mind,
with things
left unspoken,
left unexpressed,
left unuttered
.

I am not mute
but I am
and that is
why
I write.

To confess
that I am
indeed
imperfect.

Quinn
Why am I so quiet?
