“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
shut up,
keep it down,
nobody cares.

People aren’t born sad.
We make them that way.”

— Nikita Gill, The Girl Who Was Afraid to Be
