What do some think when I remain silent…
And choose not to act in ways loud and violent?
My weakness is what they claim to see
However, I am as strong as strong can be.
My greatest battles are won without word
While pride and foolish noise spout off the lips of some
Victory is mine when keeping silent,
Not adding onto vain clamors absurd.
When weighing out options to use my voice
The reality is - I do have a choice.
Discerning souls understand this is true –
Using inner strength and scriptural guidance
In knowing the times in when to keep silent
As we are taught by our merciful Lord to do.
Based on the following from The Bible: Ecclesiates 3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; and Psalm 34:13-14 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it
