Sometimes the words
that are the truest
are the one's
that aren't ever said
the ones that live
in silent solitude
within the mind
of the confessor
the thoughts
that aren't spoken aloud
are the ones that don't need confirmation
to be known
as the truth
Sometimes the people
who don't ask for
are the ones
that know the most
the ones that
know within themselves
that the voice within
is stronger
and more important
than any without
And that is why
Still waters
Run deep
for that which
holds more within
knows that within
the true treasure lies
hidden below

The author's comments:
I wrote this about how sometimes it seems like what we don't say is often more truthful and real that what we do. I also wrote it about how what people seek outside themselves is really only something you can find within.
