A Censored Plea

If I say it, you’ll think something is wrong.
If I don’t, you’ll never know.
If you never know, nothing will ever change.
If it does change, maybe that’s worse.
“That’s inappropriate; that’s offensive.”
So I won’t joke.
“That’s not my business; that’s too much.”
So I won’t vent.
Depth is too dark,
Jests are too juvenile,
Too much is too little,
And too little is too much.
I guess this was my way
Of saying that I’ve tried to say it.
I guess this is my way
Of asking how I should say it.
If neither answer is right then
I’ll assume that you want me to wait.
So until you say the word,
I’ll keep waiting for someone else to hear me
