Silence is my partner,
When I am overwhelmed, over stimulated,
In a world which tries to convince me of uncertainty,
In a world where my kind are hated.

So many words I do not speak,
For with wisdom comes control,
You cannot speak truth and hate,
And expect things to remain whole.

Quiet is my friend,
When things want to go astray,
It helps bring me back to God,
To whom I shall pray.

It gives me time to hear,
The songs inside my head,
The ones the Lord sings to me,
While awake or in my bed.

The best of times are yet to come,
For this world is overrated,
So take some time to be still,
And not get so frustrated.
