“Stop it,” they said.
“Stop putting the words on paper.”
    And I believed them.
“Stop” they said.
“Stop making those words appear –
        no one will see them.”
            And I believed them.
Now, as words appear,
    I lay them down quietly.
These words – I now lay them quietly to rest….
     on a white sheet made of paper –
        asking them to not be too loud,
            so as to not disturb
                those who would silence them –
                    those who believe……
                        that these words are not worth sharing.
I am beginning to not believe these words are not worth sharing.
    The words keep coming and I lay them down — quietly….
        on a sheet made of white paper….
            laying them down so as to rest comfortably side by side…
                as I feel they fit together on a sheet of paper.
I’m beginning to believe….
    these words are meant to be laid where they appear —
        on a white piece of paper —
            even if no one else will see them.
