Voiceless | By Frances Davis

Given a voice but no use for it
We are silenced by those who hear but won’t listen
We are silenced with hands over our screaming mouths
Silenced by the laughter echoing in our minds
And after, we are silenced with fear
Silenced by their reputation, silenced by their mothers cries
Silenced by paperwork and answering the question
“Well, what were you wearing?”
So take my voice away, I have no use for it
Because saying something is the same as saying
Nothing at all
