Speak Up

Speak Up

Speak up, 
Speak up about the bruises 
About the punches, 
The kicks,
The abuse

Speak up about the death wishes,
About the cuts, 
The self-hate, 
The self-shame,
The self-harm

Speak up about the hurtful words, 
About the hateful actions,
The laughing
The hate

Speak up about the crying,
About the heavy breathing,
The blurry vision,
The anxiety

For once speak up,
It might help.
Stop running,
 Letting it just happen,
Speak up.
