Silence

© 2008 Robert Lydiate


Why is it that I turn away?

What is it that I cannot say?

The pain is real, it has such strength

To avoid it I go to any length

And yet I know that I must face

This nemesis that steals my grace

For that part deep down within

That little boy who hates my sin

Not with fists, nor angry words

But with silence I cause such hurt

I back away, look down in shame

For I know I've failed again
