She bites her tongue
when she wants to speak her mind
She’d like to pack a bag
and just leave this all behind
Fear is her companion
and Anger is her child
She’s lost her voice
handcuffed her choice
and it’s too long since she’s smiled

Her shoe laces tied together
so she remembers not to run
Living in his shadow
dreams of dancing in the sun
But dreams without intention
is just paper with no pen
She wants to run
She wants to scream
so she bites her tongue again.
