Yes, please correct, but judge me not.
Withdrawal, holding back with tears.
More likely will I blameless stay.
Please kindly show me; do not goad.
How can a judged one recompense?
My sins it’s hard to rise above.
Help me understand.
I didn’t know
What my words might do to you.
I’m in a fantasy land;
What my actions do to you.
Am I bereft
How did I know
What I could do,
Since silent were those
Who’d tell me true?
What does the silence mean?
It can be peaceful and serene.
It can be tense, it can be mean.
Let our silence be a calm,
A healing balm,
A space that will give birth to song.
