I wrote this for part of a #Silence challenge on Instagram here
In this world of strife and vanity,
where we talk a lot without really saying anything.
We’d rather assume than ask – what’s the motive
Silence is my only respite.
Usually accompanied by trains of thought(s)
Diverging and converging
With starts, connections and stops
Silence is my only respite;
I’m just trying to get my words right.
This part is just a stop gap;
I’m just trying to set my mind right.
