We Must SpeakBy: Anonymous | Posted: Jan 06, 2017
The truth can be hard, but without the truth there is only death. We must speak, for us and for those who can no longer speak.
It’s like a poison which infests your brain,
Infects your name.
Screams, claws, punches and maims.
Impossible to tame.
The taste of vomit, is the only thing on which I can comment.
It’s the only thing that lingers on, when family dread speaking to you, and friends have moved on.
It’s as if I don’t know how I have got here, and yet it’s so crystal clear.
What happens to your brain and your behavior
When trauma and pain are allowed to steer.
I wish I had been in a war, so that people could understand,
It's not just soldiers, with blood on their hands.
