The Raging Storm

Take a deep breath, girl
You can do it.
Hush, child,
Don't make a sound,
You're not allowed.
Be still, woman,
Never let them see you cry,
Never.

I take a deep breath,
And close my eyes.
A tear slips free.
The cage is closed,
The door secured.
My fingers curl about the bars,
My forehead pressed to the coldness.
The chains rattle,
As my shoulders tremble.

I throw my shoulders back
My spine held straight,
My head held high,
My eyes calm and clear.
Nothing given,
Nothing taken,
Nothing betrayed.

The moment passed,
The silence comes.
The storm rages.
