Voices
By Zoe Bokaztain


I am surrounded by the things I cannot see
And its these thoughts These feelings
That make it hard for me to breathe
My friends tell me
Love is all you need But it was love that caused me to secede.

No I am not that kind of person that would catch you gaze
For I am just another girl Tapped in life's maze.
I try not to think I try not to feel
But its hard not to cry when the words feel as steel.
However, I do not take my feelings and make them your own
for I have moved from the past And made a new home
A place where I can sleep Without out the words of voices telling me ‘You made the wrong choices. ‘

We are all prone to violence If people
laugh
If people
stare
Shake It Off my friends Because they are the ones impaired.

Our hearts are like children So
innocent
and
fragile
But Its our choice
Who to
let in
And Who
to let out.
