I guess you don't realize
Sometimes the truth is better not told
There's so much I want to say to you
I am so sick of being censored.
Of not saying what I want to say,
If I want to scream “****”
To the world,
who will stop me saying “nay”.
I am sick of being censored
Of not telling people how I feel.
I am sick of holding in my feelings
It does indeed make me feel ill.
So ill I fear I am about to snap
And let all of my feeling spill.
I am sick of being censored,
Of biting back my tongue.
Soon enough I’ll snap right through,
And there will be nothing left to be done.

not only does society censor us, but we censor ourselves
On my school laptop certain things are censored
some make sense,
like **** sites, cursing, and violence.
but some don't,
like words such as self harm, depression, suicide
why is it censored,
this addiction, this disease, this ending.
should it be hidden?
should it be kept inside?
should i stop talking?
should i stop writing?
or should it be considered a cry for help when i type the words s-e-l-f h-a-r-m, d-e-p-r-e-s-s-i-o-n, s-u-i-c-i-d-e
im back but not better trying to use this instead of cutting stay safe everyone
Freedom of choice
Un/Censored body, Un/Censored mind
Shared from my Anthology, Canvas: Echoes and Reflections, 2018.
Not near-sighted; not far-sighted
Just blinded by stupidity
By rich inhumanity
Lack of love in society
Absence of insight; omission of outsight
Just censored curiosity
Loss of credibility
Futures foresighted; actions unsighted
The past, no punctuality
Death by immortality
Buried from reality
There has been some contradiction and confusion on whether or not 'outsight' is actually a word. Through common knowledge and basic spellcheck, 'outsight' is not a word. But 'Dictionary.com' says that it is truly part of the English vocabulary. So believe what you want to believe.
Prejudice helps us
Labels help us
know what things are
Gender roles are convenient
Use them if you must
But don't be a c*nt.
