Silent Words

Wait, it’s never too late
for years, i have been sitting on the fence
contemplating whether to go this way
or go the other way;

unable to decide and
unable to comprehend
what i saw and
what i witnessed;

i stayed glued to this fence
occasionally walking to the edge
only to scamper back
to the middle again and again;

never quite really understood
these colourful emotions and
what they were trying to
tell me or do to me;

the cautious person
that life forced me to be
i was sceptical of
life itself;

when the fence that was my home
just gave away under the
onslaught of an external force
that i carefully protected me against;

the time to decide and
the time to take action
was thrust upon me
in one single night;

throwing caution to the wind,
tired of living an existence
for the sake of living,
i jumped out of the fence;

i jumped out of the fence
into the very emotions
that i failed to understand
and kicked out of my life;

seasons change and
as the once silent heart
whispered its way back into my life
the words that were silent, came back alive;

just a couple of simple words
i promised myself i would not cry,
another day comes and goes,
as i reach out to
this thing called life
i fill my heart with love
ready(waiting) to share it with you;
