Silence Speaks

Silence speaks although we try to hide,

What is deep within and festering down inside.

Silence speaks when our pain is so deep and is real,

And we’ve done all to cover what we really feel.

Silence speaks in our rage and in our guilt,

Then, peeks out its head from behind the walls we’ve built.

Silence speaks when we try and can’t love one another,

Because we have been violated by a sister or a brother.

Silence speaks through many a scar or a bruise,

That we’ve tried so hard to cover with the concealers we use.

Silence speaks when the wounded one inside us cries out,

And manifests itself in the insults we may often shout.

Silence speaks when love doesn’t live here anymore,

And we run to or fro and sin behind closed doors.

Silence speaks when we always feel rejected,

And are afraid to expose the lies we have protected.

But silence loses power when we are ready to reveal,

Our wounds to our Father who is strong enough to heal.

Confession can end our suffering only if we are willing to disclose,

Our iniquities and hurts to the One who loves us most.

Silence may speak but His grace and love speak louder,

When in His arms we fall as His precious sons and daughters.

I am an educator, a wife of 24 years, and mother of three beautiful children. I have taught the word of God to all ages and love to share it in creative ways. I've always had a passion for written expression. Over the years, I have documented my personal thoughts and prayers. Poems, devotionals, worship songs, and more have come from my life experiences. Now, I am ready to share them with the hope that lives and hearts will be changed as well as greatly blessed. I am flawed but striving for perfection in Christ. Although I have fallen short of the glory of God, I am forgiven. I am loved with an everlasting love. I am FREE!
