Selfish Pleasure (Poetry)

I am in pain
       But I have to swallow my scream

I want to scream

       But I know it will be in vain

Either you can’t hear

        Or you just don’t want to listen

What seems most dear

        Is the sole pleasure you gain.

  1. I hope to do so, Mr. Mel. I hope to find the courage to fight back or, at least, assert my right not only in writing but to be more vocal in my words and actions. But, sometimes, in the name of PEACE and LOVE, I tend to back down and stifle my protestations.
