To be silent,
is never the answer,
is sometimes the answer,
is the answer for me.
My lips sealed shut,
my words bubbled up,
and then swallowed back down.
My breath wanting to rush out,
I hold it all in.
To be silent,
is never the answer,
is sometimes the answer,
is the answer for me.
After All,
I learn more this way,
I know your secrets this way,
I know your thoughts this way.
To be silent,
is my way,
to be silent,
is a part of me.
To be silent,
is something I want to change.
