Within silence

Sometimes
There is a need
For silence

.

For a space
Void of sound
And laughter and joy
Being peacefully
On the other side

Of the moment
In silence

Being alone
Or even

Being together
In a realm
That needs

No filling
No excitement
Or exuberance

Enthusiasm
Of the space
In between

To listen
Carefully
To the sound
Within silence


Are
The quiet voices
Being heard enough?

Are the quiet voices
Being heard enough?

Does
Empathy
Reach further than the eye can see?
Further than the arm can reach?

Is a silent ear
Enough, to hear
The quiet voices preach?

Can it be
That on occasion
The singing and dancing
Extends too far
For some

For
Some
Are
The quiet voices
Being heard enough?

Can we listen
To the quiet voices preach
Lend a hand
Extend
Empathy
And
Let the unspoken be
Within reach
?

Is there anything to be shed?
Is there anything to be said?
Or to be unsaid?

Is anybody sad? Today
Not everyone can always be happy
Tomorrow, or yesterday

Can we see
Let be
Simply what is
There
Here
Now
To process
Ponder upon
Allow to enter
Acknowledge to be

A door without a fitting key

A door, that is not to be pushed

A button
Of a flower

Whom, in time
When nourished, and
Offered care
Properly

Will open
Just right
Eventually
.

Spread the Love

In my experience, our ability to deal with complex challenges, create positive change in any area of life, and contribute to a sustainable impact in the world around us, requires an authentic kind of self-leadership that starts with getting clear where you’ve been, where you are now, what really matters to you, where you really want to go or get, and especially how you will be and grow as a person along the way.
