365 Poems in 365 Days: Silence
A friend put something onto Facebook
A message and picture, when I looked,
Asking people to break silence on miscarriage.
I did nothing. I have both too much and too little baggage.
I know women who miscarried and dealt
With it in a variety of ways; rebuilt
Broken lives and strained relationships -
But these aren't my stories so my mouth stays zipped.
Not a woman, this can only effect me second hand.
It's a topic I shouldn't talk, only listen (and
I might upset my pregnant Facebook friends;
Like a coward that was my excuse in the end)
So here's the thing; this is not my silence to break.
I'm here to listen, speak up for pities sake.
