People say that silence is golden
But I don’t understand
What interpretation should it be given?
For it contains lots of thoughts…
Lots of emotions…
Silence can be symbol,
Or a huge storm under an ocean
Which can destroy anything in its path?
Ruthlessly, without even a notice…
Silence can be a state of nothingness,
When people are unable to sense anything,
Good or bad, sorrow or pleasure,
Where world seems without rustle.
Silence if out of sorrow, not expressed
Can lead to disturbance in mind
For it hinders the body’s reactions & expressions,
to a situation…
Silence can make relations
But also beholds the power to break the relations
For people interpret it the way they want
Or the way they feel
It beholds the power
To bring a self to peace,
To give it bliss!
But it can also create unrest
Which can depress a soul
A little silence does a lot good
Then words do at times
But as everything has its own
So does the silence…..
