December 1982


I sit here

In silence

Surrounded by noise

People talking

Music playing

But I say nothing

Fearful that I would

Ruin the balance

Upset the scheme

Make myself a fool


I cannot keep silent

The tide is breaking out

The words wishing life

Live not in sound

But lie on paper

Expressed but locked away


Each New Day A Miracle
