“Just Because” Poem – Quiet

This poem was originally written for my Creative Writing class in December of 2010.



Just becuase I’m quiet
Doesn’t mean I have nothing to say
Doesn’t mean I have no feelings
Don’t talk like I’m not there
Just because I’m quiet
Doesn’t mean I have no opinions
Doesn’t mean I don’t believe
I have something to say
Just becuase I’m quiet
I am ready to listen
I am ready to understand
The words will leave my tongue
Just because I’m quiet my words have greater weight
