Freedom of Silence

Updated: Apr 1, 2022

I prefer to be silent for now

Silence is all I seek;

The unaccountable images

swirling around,

I want to pause them

for some relief.

The void within dare to peek,

how hard I try

to shove them aside;

The anguish I laid to sleep

I fear, it's arising-

from dormancy, it peaks.

The steps I lead every day

at times take me backward,

the more I pull myself

I get pushed thereafter.

For this moment

I want to be silent,

For this moment

I want to be me:

Just the way I am

just the way I feel free...
