silence drips into pure gold

 

in those moments where it takes all we are
to keep our mouths closed
to keep our eyes forward
to keep our tongues tamed

in those scenarios where we are eager to speak
eager to tell
eager to explain
eager to defend
eager to debate

in those moments where it takes all we are
because we are so eager
to trust the truth to be known with or without our insistence

our silence drips into pure gold
and we learn to be confident in the truth
rather than our defense of the truth
