“She speaks to me fondly of passions and talents,
guitars and stars,
then stops short
and apologizes for speaking at all.
All because somewhere in her life,
someone she loved broke her heart
by ignoring her beautiful words
and telling her to
keep it down,
People aren’t born sad.
We make them that way.”
