silent doll

You want me to be quiet
You should have made me silent
surely as you made me beautiful
in your womb
the only thing about me
you can claim as your own
no wonder you value it so much
But I will never be your beauty
because I never stop talking
and I don’t like you
or anything you do
You hate my speech
You have tried to silence me all these years
Your broken doll
thrown out as rubbish
Fallen from favour
maltreated, misused
Too big to keep small
still lives, still speaks
Haunting the streets forever
with words you hoped would never live
and now will never die
