When You Say Nothing At All...

When you say nothing at all…

Though have emotions big & small.

You have so much to express,

But, to your ego, you’d rather caress!

How dare they treat me like this?

Why trap me like a helpless little fish?

Why was I made the conspiracy’s target?

How could they not share the secret?

Why the exclusion, the friendless pain?

Why the jeer, this attitude, the disdain?

Why is everything so sadly amiss?

What had I done to deserve this?

Strange they even dream to ignore me!

I’m the most deserving, can’t they see?

Mind sport & debates, conscience replies,

Voices in the head weigh truth & lies!

Who can fathom the angst & the din?

The seething powerful Volcano within?

Appalled by all the drama & unfairness,

Does good protest employ- Words or Silence?

Even if you do share what you feel,

Even the right words won’t seal your deal!

Understanding where you stand is beyond them!

Only a jeweler knows the worth of a gem!

Say nothing at all & let your actions speak!

Volumes to inspire & World will follow quick!
