The Name of Silence

The name of silence is enflamed
Eyes are white smooth mirrors
Thoughts turned into warped images
Arms are bridges of truth
With black blood running within
Words are infinite steps
Hanging on a floating void
Suspended by the chains
The flattery of the oblivion.

“Speak the truth, even if your voice shakes”

I recently saw this on a bumper sticker. Pulling off the road to write it down, I kept repeating it so I wouldn’t forget it. Speak the truth, even if your voice shakes.

That statement is brilliant.

Let’s evolve for a second in an analogy of apologizing. There is “I’m sorry” and then there is “I am sorry” with the trembling in the voice. Which one would sound more sincere to you? Your answer will determine not only how you apologize but also how you see things for what they are.

Life is hard enough, so I don’t understand how people have the time nor the energy for additional drama in their life, except that they enjoy the attention. Being genuine is a lost art in this world. It’s sad to me for when I was growing up, it was your name that you protected and valued. Today, we value who has the most toys, and who can virtually beat up another person. I have to add, that if you are a twitter follower of mine and you feel you can ‘beat me up’ online, what a sad sad person you are. Come to my house. I will be happy to give you my address. I am 45 and 40mm and a pitbull that I would like to introduce you too. Or, you could just get a life and start being a grown up.

Ok, back on track. Speak the truth, even if your voice shakes.

Apologies are like a ton of bricks being lifted off  shoulders because it is something that always needs to be done.  So, s
peak the truth, even if your voice shakes.

Let’s start being forthcoming and in that, being honest about what you are speaking about.

Speak the truth, even if your voice shakes. It will set you free.
