Suffocating Oppression

Suffocating

Day after day

With things I can't say

Crying from my cage

Would result in a breaking

Of my heart, mind, soul, and anything else they see for the taking

I suffer in silence

Afraid to mention

How damaging it is to live under this opression

They left me scarred

With too much to bear

Not knowing how easily I can tear

Tears don't come

You'll just make me mad

Making me feel weak and reminding me of what I never had.

I don't want to live

Yet I don't want to die

Someone stop me before I cry.

They tried to break me

All this time

And told me lies.

I will not break

Under the tension

Or this suffocating oppression.
