“Silence is a source of great strength.” ~Lao Tzu

Silence 2

The silly normals spit and fight
And spew their rage with all their might
But even when they squeal their loudest scream

All theatrics are no match
For calm which always does dispatch
Their anger and makes it run out of steam

Silence is the greatest foe
Of those who complain of their woe
To say nothing back does create a void

That sucks in all the vengeful bile
While it returns just a slight smile
Leaving argument weak and destroyed

Silence is a weapon all
Possess but most don’t have the gall
To look a shouting person in the eye

And take all of the hateful talk
And be able to not let shock
And not feel driven to loudly reply

To not let a fool control speech
Instead to show, to lead, to teach
To forsake all the snide remarks and wit

To hear their ignorance and not
Feel compelled to return the shot
Instead to land a different kind of hit

The strike of grace across their chest
When only silence is expressed
To take ugliness and not give it back

The ones who can’t control their mouth
All feel a thundering kick south
When there is a silent counter-attack

When one stands fast and looks in eyes
And doesn’t blink while they hear lies
And doesn’t let “injustice” irritate

And rather than be affected
Their silent strength is projected
In ways that are impossible to state

    As Tauler says, “Because in the school of the Spirit, man learns how to speak by silence & how to live by dying.”

    Silence is an excellent form of defence against the onslaught of a torrential storm of words intent on being driven home to cause pain.. I learnt a long while ago to walk away in the silence .. It is a weapon far greater than to stoop to sling muddy words back…

    And in the Silence the slayer becomes weak, for with no returned of weaponry of words they then can throw no more back… For you already let them pass straight through you…
    Such is the Power of Silence…. and a smile……..

    An excellent post Miro … And it takes strength of will to know when to keep silence and when to speak.. 🙂

    Hi Miro, so ironic that I clicked on your blog and found this article straight away. I have taken some time away from wordpress but getting back to it now and look forward to seeing more updates from you! Keep it up! Great job.
