Amidst Silence and Tears

You
Betrayed me
I wept and wailed
In agony
I could die a thousand deaths
And cursed a million times
Amidst silence and tears.

But I chose to simply cry
‘Till the tears run dry
And I could cry no more
I suffered in silence
I was quiet
But I was brave
Amidst silence and tears.

You
Can destroy me
But you can never bring me down
Nor topple my spirit
I am empowered
Amidst silence and tears.
