What Does That Say

That I would do harm to myself
rather than confront 
the one causing my anguish
What does that say of 
my love for myself?

That I would suffer in silence
rather than to speak 
my truth to power
What does that say of 
my own self-worth?

That I would hope for death
rather than fight
for my finest life 
What does that say of
the strength of my dreams?

That I would give up my life
rather than remove
the thorn from my side
What does that say
of the pain I can bear?

What does that say
What does that say
What does that say
About me?
