Shhh, Silence is Not GoldenShhh Silence Is Not GoldenBy Kelly FarsonCan no one hear my silent screams?Shhh, nothing says anything at all, can you hear it?Can no one see my invisible presence?Something, not there, passes by unnoticed.Hello? Hello…hello…hello..hello. (says the echo)Does a muted songbird still sing?Does it wish for it?What pains it must feel to strive to be what it is when it cannot.Inside, the message is clear and understood and loud.Outside, the message is something of a whisper not really spoken.Wave! Flail! Toss yourself about in a mad dance of expression, that none can see.Oh, but if only there was a real reason for this unwanted solitude.If only there was an explicable explanation.But alas, I find none.But… I can write. Yay me.
