silence empowered

its the power of being mute
not open not quite

is the trick to upset others
punish with pain of indifference.

its the power of silence
exercised by those powerful

to quieten the disquiet
to wrap beneath, away from sight

the well- known secrets of the public life
the reason for the latest fight

the cause of tears, private happiness
that secret smile, a silent chuckle

all it takes to silence anger is to
smoothly iron out differences

of years of baseless arguments
to hug and kiss and repeat it again

silence empowers you
when you chose to ignore

patterns that provoke anger
snides that signal hatred

empower silence thus
be at peace always

    She smiled nodding her head
    My darkness
    gently releasing my breath
    Freezing the bones
    nice to heart (Report) Reply
