I heard no amount of words would fill a basket,
Then,I was told to speak up rather than taking it with me to my casket,
To live not just exist,
For one day,with or without my dreams I’ll exit.
I heard silence is the most powerful scream,
And that’s why I encouter the divine even in my dream,
I was told life is too short to worry too much,
That,I rather stay firm when life throws a punch.
So many have I heard,
And so have I shared,
Yet,silence do I fear,
And thousand words out of my mouth did no one hear.
If today isn’t assured,this day give to me my daily bread,
If tomorrow is a gift,with my present let me be fed,
If words would fail me,then silence with me lay your bed,
If silence isn’t the answer,may my words someday be heard.
