A language that everyone speaks.
But one that we are not able to hear.
A place where emotions and abandonment meet.
Of which we are forced to confront our buried fears.
There are no more lessons that the agents of society can teach.
An infinite amount of words expressed through a solitary tear.
People dish out advice but never practise what they preach.
A language with the same traits as a hopeful prayer.
A society where people judge others, as they sit back in their self proclaimed seats.
They can no longer understand you and they aware of the darkness that draws near.
Many lives led but we are all accompanied by the same drumbeat
Maybe you don't want to be heard but people will forcefully lend an ear.
Lips fused together, unintentionally bounded.
Some how you can still feel stranded even though you're surrounded.
Tongues constrained by a row of teeth.
The mirror reveals your outline but obscures what lies beneath.
Thoughts thought but never brought forward.
Social occasions begin to turn pointless and awkward.
If the thoughts were brought forward they would never understand.
Eventually they will use it against you, in order to get the upper hand.
A one-way conversation with yourself that has no end.
In order to revert back to normality, we all must block out the voices and pretend.
Smile and be the person they all want us to be.
But tell me with all these requirements, can we ever be free?
If you don't stand in line, it means you stand out.
Regardless if you're caught in a paradigm occupied by your own doubts.
So I have no choice but to;
Avoid the suspicions, the negativity and the violins.
Avoid the flashing lights, the warnings signs and the sirens.
Avoid the profanity, the injustice and the violence.
And accept their assistance, advice and their guidance.
Because they just won't let me be alone
With my silence.
