I opened my eyes,
But I missed so much that I needed to see,
I closed my mouth when I should have kept it open,
I had so much to say.
I stood still,
As every nerve in me screamed for me to move,
I ignored every instinct,
Even though they were the only things I had to follow.
I did nothing,
When there was so much I could have done,
But I stay silent still,
Because not every secret is meant to be told.
