the quiet

it inspires me when

        the silence

        is shattered

        by the soft-spoken

when the voices rise up

        from the violence

        from the battered

        from the broken

for the greatest of strengths

        we can gather

        to protect us

        in our riot

is not those who yell loudest

        but rather

        to connect us

        those they kept quiet.
