Tomorrow’s Voices Today: Pilli Jaquez

Unspoken Truths

People’s cry for help
wishing someone
would hear

Hungry
for someone
to truly listen

Afraid
of sounding crazy

Silenced
by their inner-hate
self love
is non-existent

How do you express something
you’ve never felt?
Relying on others for constant
reassurance

That they are important

That they matter

The voices in their heads
much louder
than when they
actually speak

Overcome with fear
scared to speak
scared to be silenced
once again
scared to lose their voice
scared to lose
their thoughts
scared to lose the one thing
they can truly call
their own
