I feel it most in solitary.
A quiet prison doesn’t exist.
My thoughts racing
Yet trapped by the need to be sane.
What does silence sound like to you?
Cause the whistles of the wind,
the crackles of dead leaves hitting the ground
Breaks my peace of mind.
What does meditation feel like for you?
Cause the urgency to just breathe,
and the whispers of let it be
Brings rage to my spirit.
forced into silence for so long
will you speak for me.
