Breaking Silence

I’ve never understood why people stay quiet in certain situations, situations they feel strongly about or situations that affect them.  They know they should say something but don’t, like when a person has feelings for someone and they’re afraid to say something because they’re scared of the result.  I wrote this when I was once in a similar situation.

Silence never breeds resolution

It only evolves into a cancerous pollution

Conventional wisdom tells us to be quiet

Speaking our mind only ignites riots

But as things remain unresolved

My heart like a dead petal falls

I can only learn if I grow from my mistakes

So I open my mouth and this silence I break
