"Censorship"

There is a game called censorship,

that lives within my head.

The rules are quite intrinsic,

to survive or be found dead.

The words that are unspoken,

flow inward to survive.

My writing’s and expression,

to the voice that was deprived.

Nothing like a short but sweet poem. I often feel that way when I write.

Interesting, I have never felt that way when I write. My writing has always been my safest place to put out all the things that I could not voice.

Thanks so much,

Sage
