Silent Voice

Written by Sylvia - Input from billy rob

He silenced my voice so my words went unspoken
and all through those years held me down.
I dared not speak, for the cost would be hell

if my words should cause him to frown.

My opinions, thoughts, and views of this life
with me silenced, could never be spoken.
I dared not speak, for the cost would be hell

and I would be left shattered and broken.

Out of fear I gave in, never taking a stand
constantly rebuked, I was silenced again.
I dared not speak, for the cost would be hell
and this I can never explain.

Living in a maze, what direction should I take
Never asking anyone’s help or advice
I dared not speak for the cost would be hell
And my way would have to suffice

I have found my voice, no longer to be silenced
No longer will I be held down
I dare now to speak, for I'm free from that hell

and I'll never again face his frown.
