Silence. It is meant by its very nature to be ‘nothing’, not words, not sound, not expressed emotions like crying or laughter, nothing at all. Yet it is something. Because, sometimes when we say nothing or do nothing, we say everything.

Why does silence hold such power ? Is it because it holds the promise, the potential for something, either to be said, done, seen, heard, felt, known, experienced? Or is it because we prefer it, because it commits us to nothing, no responsility, no accountability, no emotion?

Silence. It is nothing, yet it is everything.

    this is some powerful commentary, lady..

    i hear u wen u say, its about alleviating some sort of responsibility, accountability… but then, truly, its also a choice not to impose a range of judgments onto someone else… at some point it is a choice… to act or not to act. an invitation to act. or to remain seemingly oblivious and unaffected. to allow others to reflect on their own choices and experiences. sometimes love is letting people carve their own route without impressing upon them what you think is the right way. i dnt know. these are just some of my own confused ramblings anyway 😛

    but i love when you blog these high powered notes. small in wordcount but oh so loud and clear!

    silences hurt. silences heal. quietness is a peace and a freedom. especially when u dnt feel safe to share your thoughts cos they might get trampled on, shredded to bits, leaving you emptier than when u first started…reflection should be just that. like looking into a clear pond and seeing only your own eyes twinkling back at you. to know yourself is to know God.

    i shud blog a post 🙂

    ‘In restless dreams I walked alone
    Narrow streets of cobblestone
    ‘Neath the halo of a street lamp
    I turn my collar to the cold and damp
    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
    That split the night
    And touched the sound of silence’

    a gem oldie.. dunno if u r familiar =D
    here my chords r wildly tickled!
