I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT BY ROD STEWART

I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT BY ROD STEWART

Often times friends say “I am fine” when they are clearly sad or badly damaged emotionally because they do not want to talk about it. I see no reason why it happens but I want to believe that humans have evolved to a point where they box things to people who are not consistent enough to get them to talk about it.

It may sound utterly weird but all the same, I don’t just share emotional stuffs to people who may seem not to care but want to know- nobody does that. Even my consciousness is a bit alert to every inquisition at such times. The big question is why don’t you want to talk about it?

Sometimes, the people you think don’t want to talk to you are the ones waiting for you to talk to them.

In 2019, the rate of suicide increased rapidly in some parts of Nigeria as well countries beyond her shores that I really do not remember. That year, I opened my ears and mostly my arms to people. The arms comes first because most times, tears quaked the words. So it had to go for the words to come out without a sob. I discovered that most of the victims decided to kick the bucket because they did not talk about it or should I say were unable to talk about it. Maybe because nobody was there. How can that be true? Is it possible not to have at least a one go-to person?

But seriously, you have to talk about it. The platform is open. Feel free to pour it out. Pour out everything. Don’t hold it back. Let the pain out! That way you become free.

Days disappear yet I stay
walking inside my mind
searching empty rooms
where did we leave us.

My words still sing you
mirroring days between
shadows that took us
whispering who we were.

How will time find us now
lost inside our memories
will broken pieces of us
fit together again?

Paroxysm of pain
bellowed in clouds
if i show u my heart
will u get misty-eyed
moments giveth
stand composed
in a certain forgiveness
my tears ruins
scattered amongst
yellow leaves sleeps
with the good earth
temperament
imposing balance.

I don’t need to listen to the song to know I don’t wanna talk about it all night long I know you’re not gonna listen unless you’re paid to I know you’ll make excuses it’s just what most do. When I tell you about being raped you’ll ask what I was wearing that night If I tell you I was 4 when it started you’ll shake your head attempt to talk about someone that’s departed. If I speak on how many times it happened “Not all men” will be the next words slapping Every one says they care but when… Read more »
