I am Silent

I struggle, therefore, I am silent
and refuse to allow my words to flow
keeping them locked up tight in my mind.

I struggle, therefore, I’m defiant
preferring to suffer the tornado
of thoughts swirling unrefined.

I struggle, therefore, I’m uncompliant
not giving in to the undertow
and refusing to be confined.

I struggle, therefore, I am silent
choosing not to kowtow
to labels, or to be defined.

I am silent, because I choose to be
and I can’t be anyone else, but me.
