My Silence

It is in silence I hear so much. My voice is loudest although I'm not speaking. My words are thoughtful and precise when I'm in silence. Listening to my breath I can sense my own frustration, nervousness or calmness through the silence.

When in silence I am aware of so many phrases, words and ideas all being pummeled at me. Some stay, some leave. Some return again and again, and some are quickly forgotten.

In my silence I surrender to my faults and weaknesses. I acknowledge my beauty and strength. I see me for who I am in silence. The quiet projects my image. Loud and clear. Silence steals the empty space and fills it with bittersweet revelations in such magnitude.

It is in my silence I am exposed and fragile. Allowing all there is to rush me. Overthrowing my body and demanding attention. My silence is loud. It scares me, it comforts me. Silence escaping. I sit in my silence.

That's very though provoking. I sit in silence reading it and look back in silence. When I look forward the silence goes. I prefer the latter. Thanks for sharing this.

I love your awareness and understanding of our human thought process and how we can discover ourselves in silence. This reminds me of being in the now through meditation, listening to our thoughts and exploring when & where they come from. Choosing which ones we want to listen & nurture. Thank you for sharing, it's been the perfect reminder of self care.

No, thank you for reading and commenting!

Very nice. Nothing real can be threatened, all else is ...well not real. Leave fear, keep on toward light.

Silence speaks louder than words do....nice post!

I absolutely loved this story! Silence really is golden :)

Oh, you are so sweet! Thanks

Whispering......you're welcome

It is good to see silence be respected rather than assaulted for a change!
I'm glad you haven chosen this in your expression ( depending on your POV )

Thank you

Very beautiful, you are a very talented writer.

Silence is something I had to learn to like, I was always someone going a mile a minute and would get uncomfortable if there was no noise. If there was no music, or television or something in the background I would get antsy, feel nervous. I didn't like being alone with my own thoughts.

In the last few years I've worked on that, and now I LOVE the silence. I enjoy quiet reflection and introspection. I recognize the importance of allowing myself to just be, to be still, to be quiet, to be in a moment and allow myself to feel things.

Thank you for sharing this story and reminding me of the value of silence.

*hugs*
