Bully

They say that the one that stays silent is the one that does nothing at all. I disagree.

They say that the one
that stays silent
is the one that does
nothing at all.
I disagree.
For I am the turtle
resorting within its shell
not from fear,
but for the sake of peace.
This isn’t a truce towards you,
It’s for mental clarity,
for me.
Your opinions and movements
rob me from the peace
I used to receive
through the silent meditations
upon which I would feed.
Now, there’s too much noise
surrounding me.
You’re a bully.
Your chants are evil
as I struggle to utter my prayers.
I say “Amen” and repeat
because there you are choking me.
Let me be.
Unhand me.
I fight for my integrity
by drowning your voice
and building up my spirituality.
And even if I were to join your army,
your pursuits will come to futility.
Because how will you ever agree
when everyone feels the need
to speak?
