Silence Eternal

Mine is the story

Of a girl

African

Gambian

Wolof

Taught to be silent

To never speak up

Bottle up my pain

Cover up my troubles

Hide my scars

Choke on my tears

Mine is the story

Of silence

A story untold

Mine is a story

Kept only for my grave

A story

Of silence

Deafening

Silence
