My Own Silence

Sometimes I like to unwind my soul and mind and get lost
        in my own silence.
When it’s silent, I hear things I have never heard before.
I stop and listen, to what people may think is nothing.
But when I listen, it’s a whole other world.
If you listen hard enough, you can hear your heart beat.
You block out everything around you so that all you hear is
your soul singing a lullaby to your heart.
When you are silent you see the world
with every perspective, and this was one of mine.
