gag order

i’m keeping myself to myself
my words bring only heartache to the world
and jesus knows the world is drowning
in heartache enough already
i need to center
i have been tossed to the winds of circumstance
whirling freeform and directionless
i hear nothing
the silence guts me
so i too shall be mute
but never mistake my silence for uncaring
it only means i can say nothing
that anyone wants to hear

    Very dramatic, GIna ….just like anyone that wants to speak the truth….they are quickly silenced….or put in jail …like Bradley Manning and Julian Assange.

  • Yes, it’s difficult being a Cassandra. TY,
