At times when I want to share my thoughts
my lips seem stitched n’ silence creates knots
Silence becomes d’ loudest things of all
it drowns all I want to share n’ recall !
Nothing emerges as thoughts painfully hide
silence oppresses all that keeps pounding inside
apprehensive n’ nervous quietness overtakes
waves come and go but none touch the shore !
Who will understand what i am yearning to say
as silence speaks an alien language each day
trapped thoughts inside will one day break free
as d’ burden of silence will be too much for me !
When neither words nor tears leave my body n’ soul
I look up n’ see a beautiful rainbow becoming whole
smile ,laugh n’ be happy it whispers in tranquility
let kind words be spoken ,silence can’t reign eternally !
Silence is golden but when thoughts fill your mind
Unburden let go what made you dumb , n’ speak kind
For words you utter once you cannot retrieve back
speak such words for which you never have regrets!
Speak in a way in which you would like to be spoken to
For a bad wound heals but a bad word doesn’t do
Know d’ power of words and d’ power of silence
Life becomes peaceful when you balance the two !
