Of Imposed Silences

I have so many words I want to write tonight. There is much happening around me, around us that impacts me and people I know and care for/with. But we all don’t live by hashtags and selfies and the color of dress we choose as a statement. For some those things are beyond reach, beyond comprehension even.

There are things I would say and write but to do so would be to risk so much : the confidence of others, the comfort of my own steady paycheck.

So for now I hold not just my face but my tongue.

For now.
