Absolute ©️

The world told you 
that you had to hide your pain,
to be small and quiet,
so you wouldn’t rock the boat.
And you believed.
Then one day you saw 
the silent pain in the eyes
of a small and quiet girl 
in a boat bound
for nowhere.
And a warrior awoke.

You freed the girl from the silent shackles
and told her that her story mattered,
to tell it deep and wide and loud,
to set the boat ablaze 
with every fierce and fiery word
so all the world could hear
and heal.
And you believed.
