Silence is Golden, or so they say...



No yelling…

Nor hollering…

Or screaming at the top of your lungs, if you’re pleasing…


Yes, said it is, Silence is golden,

If herein we can achieve that silence,

I will be forever beholden…


Silent times are good for the mind & soul,

Afterwards we seem to see clearer,

Especially that which is nearer,

So please, go light on the noise coming out your hole,

And understand that is what I am trying to achieve,

Yes, that in itself is definitely my whole goal…


To be granted in silence, a place of anonymity,

A place to hide, a place to go without being known,

Keeping silent about yourself, thereby you can stay alone…
