Physically free and yet so hindered,
I can clearly see what holds you back.
Oppressed and broken, your words are tethered,
You long to speak yet it is this that you lack.
If only, if only the world could hear,
The world would then be able to see as well.
So stubborn they are to listen my dear,
So blind, and deaf to what you wish to tell.
But, hesitate no more and speak your mind,
Your soul as a bird; your voice as your wings.
Be never afraid though caged and confined,
Your words will take shape and become your key.
So fly free with your yet unspoken words,
And may it be that your voice will be heard.
- Title: Deaf. Dumb. Blind.

When I began this poem it started out as a concept of how people are so easily blind sighed by what is in front of them. They pretend not to hear it and then when they do, they say nothing.
When I finished this poem and read it aloud to myself, I realized that I had been writing to myself about those people and what I so desperately wished to say. Basically it was like I was looking the mirror and my mirror image was telling me this.
