Suffering in silence

How we handle emotions differs
From one to the next we grow more flexible or stiffer
Some of us hold them in and others let them out
But we all share the same feelings of doubt

How we each grieve changes from one to the next
They say time heals all wounds, but it also continues to wreck
As we age more loss ensues all around to me and you
Many of us still trying to learn what exactly it is we should do

How to handle the situations and experiences each day
So that we can continue to excel in an efficient way
Progressing in our lives rather than remaining still
So that we can reflect a strong courageous will

Buried beneath the surface lies an echo of silence
We all suffer from something even if you may not see it
There’s no need to be ashamed since many others feel the same
After all this life we have isn’t a game



Different shades and different styles
Is the mask you’re wearing really worthwhile
What is it you’re truly hiding away
What is it that you’re afraid of today

Are the thoughts you wish to see excel
Being smothered away because you don’t want to tell
Is the change you want to see
Something you’re keeping to yourself instead of letting it be free

What needs to happen to make you feel secure
To make you feel the voice you have can mature
To be something that can help influence the right progress
What experience needs to take place for you to want that success

If you’re contemplating many ideas, why not share
Allow yourself to show that you care
Life isn’t fair, but we’re meant to help improve situations
So don’t hide away with silence or doubt being a destination


It’s quiet time in my heart
An unfamiliar feeling even from the start
Back in the times where memory doesn’t exist
I imagine it was still filled with bliss

Questions continue to arise
With no sense of answer in sight
My mind races intelligibly
But the rotation of this world keeps me away from assembly

Electricity seems to carry a greater power
Everyone connected to technology hour by hour
Various resources at our finger tips
Still not many thinking for themselves, just instead accept ignorance

My pulse still shows mountains to climb and valleys to fall
I’ve seen so many things, but I doubt I’ve seen them all
I’ve heard so many things, but I doubt I’ve heard enough
With each passing second there is someone out there whose life is rough

Actions are being taken causing various effects
A lone man here with so much to say, but why do so if it doesn’t protect
A predator lies in wait for its prey
However, I’ve chosen to rest in silence and pray

There’s strength in numbers, it’s no false tale
So why do we separate the togetherness to make us frail


A moment in time that passes us by
We still sit in silence with wonders of why
Can we ever grasp the moment, will we even try
Or will we watch it evaporate up into the sky
Remnants of the past creep in our head, so sly
When the future is the issue that makes us sigh
Enough of the pathway that makes us shy
Provide a little insight so others don’t cry
There’s a fine line each time we reply
With expression not always translating correctly from our minds eye
Our compassion needs to apply
Since this world has focused more on what it can buy
The emotions that make us unique are what need to fly
So the morality that is left doesn’t completely die
When we continue to look out and spy
The madness that is seen isn’t short on supply
Which is why change is needed, so all of us don’t fry


People don’t usually think when they speak
Rarely do their words seem genuine
Although some try to reach their vocabularies peak
It doesn’t mean they can just spout off in any given situation
Since when did silence mean you were weak
Every time you analyze a moment, it’s positive progression

Honor each other
Illustrate love for one another
Stay true, otherwise don’t bother

Nobody will ever meet your expectations as a whole
After you learn this a brand new world opens
My suggestion would be to meet your own personal goals
Especially when nobody including yourself should make judgments


When I awoke all I felt was pain
Debris and destruction all around me
I opened my eyes slowly, vision regained
Difficult to move, but I began to breathe

I looked around, I’m indeed still alive
The wake of war at my sides
I see lights flashing, feel tremors
Laying there wondering what will come of this endeavor

I feel the need to get up and proceed
It is then I hear a voice pleasant and serene
She encourages me to rise to my feet
I look down to see myself torn and bloody

My consciousness regained I’m still confused
Why is it that I’m here, what am I suppose to do
Working my way through the smoke and distress
More voices begin to enter my head

I can’t make out what is being said
All jumbled together, I begin to forget
I try to obtain sight on my surroundings
Fire, smoke, sparks, and light are all too hindering

The one voice comes through again with clear distinction
Gets me to venture in a particular direction
I finally see an exit to get out of this rubble
But I’m still moving slowly with great trouble

Moving ever closely to the doorway, I trip and fall
Landing down on my chest gasping for breath
Where is this location, it isn’t in my memory at all
I being to try once again to elevate, but the pain reaches new depths

I close my eyes once again drifting away
The heat continues to build as my mind fades
I then feel a slight breeze wash over me
Which provides me with a new sense of energy

I once again try to stand, but simply can’t
I crawl toward the door that is still visibly encouraging
As it approaches my grasp, I’m unsure how long I’ll last
I take a second to look back and see the results of my hemorrhaging

My breaths are slow and vision blurry
The feeling of pain has me slipping into a dark shock
I reach out just in time to feel the knob
A pulse occurs reinvigorating my stamina

Eyes wide open, mind sharp, and strength restored
It is then I throw open the door, just to see no floor
I see stars and a galaxy of beauty, all further confusing
The voice re-enters my mind to step out willingly

As I exit the struggle out into the abyss
Control is lost and I begin a free fall
The lights flashing by me, I’m still in awe of this
I turn over to look back up where I exited, it’s vanished no sign of walls

The voices pick up again as I begin to acquire a fresh feel
The falling stops as my body comes to rest
I feel bolts of energy coursing around me as if I’m healed
The area too bright for my eyes to take, so I do what’s best

It is as if I’m hovering now, relocating to a safer place
I lie there motionless as if I am in a form of restraints
Silence commences as the levitation begins
A shockwave strikes through my chest reinvigorating the thoughts in my head

I’m left puzzled at the events that are unfolding
This doesn’t seem like anything anyone has ever told me
The silence is slowly going away as what I can hear varies
A few beeps and a heart that is pounding

My lungs expanding, what is this experience
At the moment of that thought I begin to feel a kiss
That kiss reverberates the essence of recovery through my body
Control has seemed to now come back to me

I lay there and the serene voice speaks once more
This time it is clearer than it was before
I can depict what it is that is actually being relayed
My surroundings normalize as “I love you” embraces my brain

I open my eyes to see a beautiful face within the light
Smiling brightly with tears running down her cheek
“You’re alive” she says, as our eyes lock tightly
I then realized the journey had meaning as my chances were bleak
