Let the silence say what needs to be heard,
Instead of filling it up with words that say nothing at all.
Words spoil everything,
they spoil death,
they spoil life,
they spoil music,
and they spoil conversations.
Miscellaneous words kill both good and evil.
I wish the world would just shut up and let me think.
Shut up and let me feel the suffering and the sorrow of the noise.
Let the silence speak, let it’s words be heard.
And say your prayers, amen.


Words will be featured in my next book, which has the working title of Highways, Byways and Cobblestones.
