Favorite Quote:
“The earth has music for those who listen.” —William Shakespeare


Standing still

Silent, observing

Heart beats

Thump thump

Thump thump.


Standing still

Unable to state

Opinions of my own.


Standing still

Mouth closed

To keep the peace.


Standing still

Emotions high

But I speak no words.


Standing still

Because no one asks

My opinion.


Standing still

Because everyone else

Makes enough noise already.


Standing still

Silent

Watching

Waiting

Heart beats

Thump thump

Thump thump.
