“Silence is a source of great strength.” – Lao Tsu

It indeed is! Especially during moments of great sadness, anger or pain

Silent Buddha

Known spaces, unknown corners,
Always filled with silence.
Constant life, never ending days,
Lost in a mayhem of balance.

Wrapped layers of muteness,
Memories piled in grime.
Silence hanging like cobwebs,
Beneath the pillars of time.

Emotions shadowed in suspense.
The heart in quiet repent.
Anger, grief; fear, betrayal;
Stories of mute discontent.

The eager vociferous soul-
Quivering in a silent scream!
Past, present, and future,
Mated in a stifling dream!

Words dear words all failing;
Voices losing strength.
Silence gently engulfing,
Hushing life into compliance!
