My Song

My Song

A Poem by ebonpinion
"

I have a bad habit of keeping my mouth closed. Sometimes you have to take away the quiet and replace it with your voice.

"
The feelings that are inside me are raging so fast.
They come when I don’t usually expect them,
But sometimes I already know when they’ll come.
 
Sometimes I’m calm; not a care in the world,
But then something happens and I just snap.
 
But right now my aggression is so high that my hand is
            shaking and my temper is short.
One small thing could happen and I could explode.
 
I don’t know where this aggression is coming from.
All I know is that my head is pounding.
All I know is that I want to scream.
All I know is that so much stuff is going on in my head
That I want to rant and rave.
I want to yell to everybody to, “Just shut up”.
I want time to think; time to sort out my thoughts. 
 
Maybe all I need is the courage to yell.
Maybe what I need is to shout and scream.
Maybe I’ve kept my mouth closed too long.
Maybe I need a turn to sing my song

Silence can be golden, but don't try telling that to a bird... No matter the weather, they know to sing. Yes.. with all that's in you, you need to sing your song. Let that rage melt away into all that brings you the joy to make your voice known. Powerful write.
