Empty streets
In the still of night,
Awoken to the silent
Starry skies
In the lull of dawn,
Observed how quietly
A tree stands
Through spring and fall,
Wondered at the
Distant existence
Of a vaccumed space
That doesn’t complain
Of being left unoccupied;
If you have ever seen
Pain in the eyes
Of a wise man who chooses
Not to respond to impudence;
You should know
That you don’t always need
Words to make your presence felt,
A voice to make yourself heard,
Persuasiveness to leave a mark,
Oratory to take a stand.
Sometimes the humble act of
Keeping quiet
Is better than a thousand words.
