Silence

In the silence of your soul,
Can you feel the peace?
What do you conclude?
Does silence speak?

In the peace in your heart,
Can you hear silence?
What do you conclude?
Is silence peace?

Sweet, but firm,
The voice of silence.
Strong and stern,
The voice of silence.
Tranquil and soothing,
The voice of silence.
Sometimes intimidating,
The voice of silence.

My ultimate strength,
This resounding silence!
