PROMPT #193

“Shhh! It’s your turn now”

Use this as the first or last line in your piece.

There is no restriction on length or format of the piece. There is no last date either, unless you wish to be featured in the Weekly Wrap.

➰➰➰

Shhh! It’s your turn now

They ask me to speak, but gag me with conditions


Hand me the mike but ask me to say nothing


What sort of freedom of expression it is, I ask


When I can only say what they think it’s proper


Where my voice can only be heard when I’m mute


Shhh! They say, don’t blurt out the truth openly


Don’t wash the dirty laundry in public, save our faces


Don’t air your grievances in front of strangers


Shhh!………..


You have the liberty to express your thoughts


But don’t cross the boundaries we set for you!

➰➰➰

A woman’s perspective!
