So, as silence sings her lullaby’s,
Silence steals her bed at night.
Silence teaches how to smile without
Her alibi, is silence.
So as silence scrubs clean panties,
Silence names girl six
as its’ abandoner.
Girl six is now a prisoner of
repeated testimony, public shame
a shameful story,
Is her namer, as whistle blower.
Had she chose silence, the number would climb further,
Maybe reaching sixteen?
So, silence is consent given,
As saying yes, would make any her
In our ideology of morality,
Silence is the right answer.
I will question all this silence!
If it names me slut, I will not wither,
As the punishment of slander shrivels
in comparison to my fear
That this could happen to my
baby, or my sister.
Silence! You are not my master!
Silence! You are not my Mister!
You have not given any gold or silver
To my ring finger!
Nor would I accept it!
Comments on “To Silence”
In Silence evils of all kinds breed.
If silence has another name it is Evil.
Evil thrives where there is Silence,
The graves only are Silent, Silence is death.
I read this peace and it spoke so personally to me,Raya has geniusly found a way to loudly and boldly face Silence!
Lots of love ♡♡♡.
Thank you mama. Grateful for your time.
