WHAT IF I HAD SPOKEN

Tears hidden behind glasses as I sit in the lunchtime cafeteria zoo, What if I had spoken ….

Papa away on business trips, Mama entertaining friends to stay sane, What if I had spoken ….

Cherishing lectures from Mama after parent-teacher meetings, What if I had spoken ….

Watching Papa and Mama quarrel over egos – feeling useless, What if I had spoken ….

Wrist or pills – scared of pain or being sick, What if I had spoken ….

Booking.com

A computer 'friend' who wants to listen to me, What if I had spoken ….

Not lonely, feeling special,

What if I had spoken ….

'Going to meet my friend, Mama' – a rushed 'ok' in the midst of a telephone conversation, What if I had spoken ….

Dark crowded house with fumes, 'friend' looks different – an odd feeling, I am not yet 16, What if I had spoken ….

My first highs and my first pay – no turning back, What if I had spoken ….

Not lonely, feeling useful on many occasions – yet still tears, What if I had spoken ….

I sleep in peace with others in a black field of fragmented brick remains – no more tears, What if I had spoken ….

Raindrops clear fumes – happy that Papa and Mama hold hands as they watch over me, What if I had spoken ….=
