Silence Will No Longer Ring in My Ears

Christime Ray is an amazing poet. Her poems always have this scalding heat which will burn you if you are in the wrong, Illuminate if you are in the dark. This is one of them. An amazingly well written piece!! Visit her blog for some more mind stunning works.

Brave and Reckless

I will not be silent

I will not maintain the peace

A ball-breaker

Then I will be loudest damn badass bitch that I can be

Silence benefits only those who have hurt us

Silence has been the noose around my neck

The soul ache of my pent-up screams of rage

Every 13th story window I have considered walking out of

How fucked up is that?!
