It's about a girl named Kate who feels silenced by everyone.

The make me feel like a failure.

Then they try to help.

Why can they not make up their minds?

I want to say "Help or yell. You cannot do both."

I would shout it but they wouldn't hear me.

They only hear or see the bad things I do.

I talk quietly and they wonder if I even speak.

'Maybe if you shut your trap,' I think, 'you'd be able to hear me.'

But of course they won't hush.

I am forced to stay in my quiet state.

So therefore I remain 'Silent Kate.'
