Words of Others

Words of Others

The truth of the matter
That others can observe
Is that even when I’m silent
I keep my precious words in reserve.

Speaking doesn’t come that easy
So I’ll wander through my mind
And I listen oh so quietly
And see what I can find.

The words of others echo
In circles in my head,
The fear that I won’t get them out
And the fear that they won’t be read.

So obvious, so plain in me
The things that I can feel,
I carry close this empathy,
Others emotions I conceal.
