A Little Slice of Silence

People are always talking.

Meaningless words or words without meaning,

it's all the same.

TV show anchors are always talking.

School shootings or student suicide,

it's all the same.

The parents are always talking.

Loosing the house or loosing their minds,

it's all the same.

 

 

The slice of silence between each conflict;

is never the same.

The slice of silence between meaningless words,

holds the emotion never conveyed.

The slice of silence between news reports,

captures the emotion of a unified family.

The slice of scilence between arguing parents,

shows how much they love their daughter.

Their daughter cannot live without a slice of silence,

and neither can I.

 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
