The World Within: I of IV (A poetic chain)

Silence can be

what kills us.

Sometimes, we choose to say nothing 
for myriads of reasons,
we choose silence.

Silence is a doctor of sorts.
Its medicine takes time,
it takes will, and strength,
and perseverance,
and a lot of courage.

We all have our reasons.

It can be a weapon, silence,
or a stone wall of defense
It can be a shelter—
a safe and special place.

But sometimes,
silence can be
what kills us.
