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.'
