shutting up. 

The worst thing about not speaking up for ourselves 

Is that we know it’s hurting us. It’s keeping us from saying what we really want

Even if it’s shouting into a void. Even if we don’t get the answer we want. 

We know we are worth something deep down 

And we’re afraid to show it. 

Too many times we’ve shut up and put up 

With accepting the arguments of others 

And believing what everyone has to say about who we are.
