If I…

If I don’t speak
It’s not because I don’t want to
Sometimes I bite my lip
And stow away my words

If I don’t cry
The tears will build
I could create fortresses with my sadness

If I don’t scream
I’ll bite back angry words
Resent myself for having these thoughts

If I allow this all to surface
Even if it’s messy
I may break open enough
To heal

from my art journal, 2012
