There is that moment of silence
When you are expecting an answer
And if it does not come immediately
It seems like an eternity
It can be a very despairing moment
Your thoughts may even begin to crumble
And you feel disjointed
As your words lie on the ground
With no meaning
As you wait for an audible tone
That never reaches your ears
Silence has a voice
You must train yourself
To hear its voice
You must silence
The voice within your own self
Not doing so
Is to create possible conflict or misunderstanding
Making it impossible to hear
What the voice of silence has to say
Ignoring the silence
Questioning the silence
For an audible answer is unreasonable
Rude and self centered.
The silence has a voice
Sometimes a very powerful voice
To break the silence is to intrude
You must listen to it from your heart
Not from the brain
It cannot be processed there.
