Silence Speaks Louder


Words aren’t enough

When life’s rough.

We say much

With a touch.


Sit in peace,

Let words cease.

An unspoken word

Is better heard.


Take a stand,

Hold my hand.

Burdens you share

Lighter to bear.


Talk is cheap,

Silence runs deep.

Words are weak

When hearts speak.
