hiraeth: Shut up. 

You may wish for me 

To remain silent  

To send my voice

Hurtling into oblivion

You may wish for me 

To be docile 

To quickly render my 

Opinion sterile

You may wish for me 

To helplessly sink 

In the quagmire of your 

Raised voice and pitch

You may wish for this 

You’re epicurean, after all

But my silence is a hazard 

It doesn’t cushion your fall. 
Value opinions. Don’t stifle free speech. You have the right to disagree, but not to ask someone to shut up. Because if they don’t talk to you, they don’t care anymore.
