For It Is Only In Silence

June 21, 2008
By Nathan Schwab, Rochester, MN

I find refuge in silence
True silence
When I am alone
Sealed from the world

For it is only in silence
That I am able to hear the screams
Of a dying world

For it is only in silence
That I can lay out my heart
On a silver platter and dissect it

For it is only in silence
That I can draw shades on the world
And turn my thoughts inward
Creating a deeper link with the essence
Of human life

Which is broken
But can be repaired

In silence
