Mute

Into a great black silence go the seekers

who left their voices behind with the temptation to speak out

happy to listen to the wisdom spouted here

let the emptiness they find fill the gaping hole

created by the last to leave

The one they watched walk away and said nothing

only chose silence as their god to worship

and now bathe in it

digging a grave in sand

and certain that this is where they belong

even though they can never dig it deep enough to lay in

I have such serious respect for people who are able to freely admit when they were wrong.
