Still In thought

Sitting in my silence looking about,

I see things in a diffrent light.

It is better to wait and discern the truth,

than to jump to conclusions

and forever be a fool.

Let me step back and listen

as the turbulent waters rise higher

upon emotions of web-like hatred

that entangles the least suspecting of all.

Remaining silent is sometimes the light,

for it is useless to argue and not know the truth.

The truth is sometimes overlooked

when dissension sets in

to warp the mind of the loser.

Such wisdom Derek, from such a young man...
Sometimes it is so difficult to not be a fool, when conclusions are drawn from those who deem themselves smarter than us mortals. It's been a day of confusion and convoluted webs.
It is best to remain silent, I suspect.

Derek,
Silence is all part of listening, and listening is showing someone you care, even when our own tempers threaten to escape. Wonderful piece and hits anyone that reads...........
