I was told to shut up as soon as I could talk,
so finding my voice has been tough.
There was never space to have my own thoughts
Never mind express what I love.
Now I’ve chosen to close myself from the world
and turn much deeper within.
A few days in silence, what will unfurl?
At least a break from my daily din.
What will I find, when my ego’s been stripped,
when I read from my sacred scroll:
will I find scribble or beautiful script
in the cavern of my heart and soul?
