There are things left unsaid and forbidden to dislodge or even think about. And because we are not in the position, we are restrained. Our mind subdued to think otherwise or not think at all. Yet the eyes see, the ears hear, but we should endure. As we grow up, we are taught that we should abide to be able to fit in. I guess I don’t want to be strangled by myself, my mind wandering off to many things that I deem right but I have to fight it and let it go. Mediocrity is what eats us. Afraid to be the bad guy or play the bad cop, so we surrender. Then there would be times that we stepped up or at least relayed our part but still end up as if nothing has been said, ignored or subdued, so should the white flag be raised? At times they lie and wait for the right words to come out of our mouths, the words they’ve been waiting to hear, but you don’t utter them. And the same question is thrown and we wonder if this time we could just be silent or they blurt out the answers themselves.
