What Songs Can Teach Us

Yesterday was the day of silence and while I could not participate in real life as I am horrifically sick so I participated online and I wanted to have a more in depth breaking the silence than I can put in an instagram caption (follow @the.gays.agenda) so…Enjoy!

 

I’d Rather Be Me

We go quiet

Today,

Everyday.

Because we are scared to be ourselves

But today we speak out

In silence

So

“Raise your right…

Finger and solemnly swear,

Whatever they say about me,

I DON’T CARE”

Today

We show them

That “sometimes quiet is violent”

With “no sound to hide behind”

Everything is emptier

Yet now maybe they can see

Today

We convince ourselves

That ourselves are right, and true

We say

“I’d rather be me than be with you”

And no more telling

Us that we “could stand right here

Or dissapear and nobody’d even notice at all”

We matter

And will be heard

Deafeningly

Through The Silence

once we agree that

“I’d rather be me than be

with

you”

So listen closely

And Hear Our Screams

of

Silence

I used quotes from three songs that I feel really capture some of the main parts of me as a human.  I used “I’d Rather Be Me” sung by Barrett Wilbert Weed in Mean Girls Broadway (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ou90LBaWj-4) “Car Radio” by Twenty One Pilots (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92XVwY54h5k) and “Micheal In The Bathroom” sung by George Salazar from Be More Chill (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaMRF8ucGJo)

Anyway hope you liked it
