My Silence Says it All

Location

When you're as quiet as I am,

You learn to KEEP quiet.

Crazy Ideas and loudest thoughts,

Sarcastic statements,

Hurtful words and painful lies

Will stay within my mind.

The silence says it all.

 

When you're as quiet as I am,

You learn to hear more, and

Observe more closely.

Question more, answer less.

Visualize more, learn more,

Understand more, worry less.

Love more, care more, dream more, and 

Hate less.

Venture more, risk more, feel more,

Confine less.

See more and BE MORE.

The silence says it all.

 

When you're as quiet as I am, Seclusion never felt so good. 

Companionless I was.

A solitary soul, but more than pleased. 

Cruel words and cutting actions.

Even they stayed within my mind.

Keep to myself and only myself.

The silence says it all. 

 

When you're as quiet as I am,

Feeling like an unhealthy child waiting to be nurtured, 

Was something usual.

When you're as quiet as I am,

You learn to see tragic beauty, and appreciate how inspiring imperfections are.

When you're as quiet as I am,

You can accept what other people see as ugly,

and embrace it with a new appeal.

The silence says it all.

 

When you're as quiet as I am,

You learn to be content,

With yourself and others.

Lonliness, strength and freedom,

All rolled into one.

Dissapontment and never satisfied love,

All stay within my thoughts.

Not everything should be said.

The silence says it all.

MY silence says it all
