The poem Speechless by Kyra Lee, was from a perspective of child an elder sister in fact. It was said in the poem that their mother can’t do anything while his father’s home. She shuts quite and they run to their rooms and doesn’t make any sound.
Their father was constantly mad at them for somehow no reason, he drinks and physically abuses them whenever they were in his vision. The two sisters truly shows fear towards their father which is the man of the house.
But one time her sister failed to keep quiet and yelled at their father, expectedly their father got mad and started beating her up. It seems that their father no longer was in the right mind. He took a short break and just watches her till the last of her breath.
The elder sister Sasha got noticed later on by her father, he then yelled at her blaming that it was her fault that-that thing happen. The title Speechless was from the last part of the poem where Sasha, the older sister who watched her sister takes one last breath refuses to speak anymore. For she blames herself for speaking towards her father and angering him to the point she lost her sister.
