Silent holler, silent scream

 

Are you strong, are you weak? Will you bend, will you bleed? Lie in shame, hide and seek? Take the punch, play for keeps? Build a callus, build a wall? Mental midget, standing tall?

Silent holler

Silent scream

Body’s frozen

Like a dream

Pick your poison

Take a drink

In the end

Too dark to see

Live in fear, living free? Growing scared, hard to see. Will you crawl, will you fly? Hard to live, hard to die. Build a castle, dig a hole? Lose your footing, take control?

Silent holler

Silent scream

Body’s frozen

Like a dream

Pick your poison

Take a drink

In the end

Too dark to see

Life is a series of battles. Every win, every loss. We tell the tale through our scars, though some are on the inside. Don’t be afraid to tell your story.
