We speak in hushed tones
And silent whispers,
Because we don't want to disturb anything.
We're scared of going against our environment of peace,
However temporary it is.
The inner tranquility,
The sanctum we want to create,
Is completely filled with silence
That shatters with even a tiny sound.
We speak in silence
And communicate through it,
As if we're afraid we will never
Attain that same silence again.
Is it worth all the trouble we go through?
Do we really need to live in such silence?
We are social animals after all -
We need to talk to communicate with each other.
What is the use of quietness if there is no communication?
What we need is appropriate silence.
The kind of silence that says everything.
