In the moments of silence

In the moments of silence

I come face to face with myself

I get absorbed in my thoughts

I listen more intently to what one says

In the moments of silence

My thoughts are fertile and alive

In the moments of silence

I feel elated, frustrated, distracted

In the moments of silence

I want to say many things

I feel dumb, realising

I have little time remaining

In the moments of silence

I hear the silence of quietude
