Steady progress

Written words are my escape
Spoken words are my chains
What can’t be said can be written.
What can be done
To release me
I do not know.
That will not stop me
From moving.

That will not stop me
From achieving.
My mind is my prisoner
Not the other way round.
I must keep pushing
I must not be staggent.

I do not speak
During hard times.
I put my head down
Mouth shut
And I keep moving.
This world is brutal.
He told me
“they don’t care”
So why vocalise
My struggle?

Speaking whilst on fire
Won’t reduce the intensity
Of the flame.
Don’t fool yourself
Thinking a bucket
Of water will
Quantch the fire.
It won’t.

Walk with it.
Be one with it
You mustn’t try
To fight against it.
It will burn you.
