In a world of noise Where no one is heard, We could use some silence, A bit of quiet. Take a step back And be still, Watch for the response, See the surprise. For silence can convey What words cannot. A feeling or a thought Hidden in words. Don’t be afraid To make your stand. Dare to be different, Refuse to mouth inanities. Be a breath of fresh air In the violent storm. Stand strong and silent In the world of noise.
