They say it is golden. Some would find it boring. I suppose if I were in the mood I would enjoy it immensely.
I try in the morning to embrace it along with my cup of coffee but,of course, my youngest child (much like me) is a chatterbox. I have told her on several occasions that I would love to refrain from conversation or noise until the caffeine has kicked in. This is a lesson that she has yet to learn in her 14 years of life.
Silence is also something that could come in handy after a long day. In our modern world of constant stimuli and busy lifestyles a moment or two of absolute quiet should be treasured and enjoyed. Again, I find it rare to be able to accomplish this feat. When it is available to me I enjoy it.
Perhaps another way to appreciate silence is to think of it in terms of just listening. Be silent with our judgments, with our opinions, and with our criticisms. We should learn listen to others not just in conversation but in general life as well.We should tame our mouths and minds to learn from all that we see. After all, if we are not speaking our minds, we could be absorbing information and learning something.

She counts his Scars while he sleeps. His chest rises and falls to a steady rhythm as his breath warms her body. His arms are wrapped around her snuggly, as not to crush her. He sleeps peacefully, while she doesn’t dare close her eyes. Continue reading
Behind this steering wheel I feel amazing.
I am in control as the music is blazing.
The trees and homes are a blur as I increase my speed.
I travel these roads as if I have been freed! Continue reading
You began to peek beneath the surface
You cannot fathom the fire within my furnace
I am all alone in my Solitude
You cannot handle my magnitude Continue reading
How will I hide
What I feel inside?
What will I do
When I see you?
How do I let them know
What I don’t want to show?
I will just do my daily tasks
Putting on my usual mask.
How do I keep away the pain
And keep from going insane?
What is the chance
That I can evade the dance?
Should I stand along this wall
To keep from feeling it all?
I’ll just hide this wine within my cask
And continue to wear this emotional mask.
