sad voices

if we fold
we fold within ourselves
becoming smaller
and more compact
in honour of our lack

we see it before we do it
we accept it
before we become it
as we will to be smaller
out of choice

whatever happened to our voice
that shook walls
that stood tall amongst monsters
it has to still be in there and furious
as we too often agree to collapse within ourselves
