Miracle/Curse Of Silence - Poem by Leland Wright

Say not a word,
for silence is golden.
heeding the warnings,
of abusers from past,
and abusers of present.
my imagery is not always;
pleasant but never shies from-
My intentions

The miracle of silence.
hiding your secrets,
cloaking your shame,
dispensing he’s draining the blame;
from all who would or could see.
Imperfections and impurity.

Life-breathing stillness;
a guarantee of existence,
cold and absent of trueness;
a self devoid of wholeness,
And decaying pain within.

What I have yet to touch,
the curse of silence?
the uncalled anger.
never balanced,
always challenged;
they pinpoint you,
As being weak.

Only cause your discreet;
soft spoken,
and powerful in your own right.
they think this is weakness.
the outspoken,
the over anxious,
are the ones who really have something to prove;
Cause my miracle my curse is my silence.
