If a girl screams But no one’s around to hear her Did she really make a sound? If a girl falls to the ground In utter desperation But no one’s around to see her Did she really move? If a room is an empty space And no one ever comes in To say hello. And the girl inside Is never given a reason To leave Did the door ever open? Or was it always locked? Rusted shut? If a girl does nothing But suffer (in silence), If she made sure no one knew, Did she ever have purpose? Did she ever have meaning? Did her time, her emotions Really happen?
