Silence

Silence has a double edge
The plight is quite complex
To speak up for the cause?
Or to grant the other consent?
Is silence good for fools?
Else a waste of uttered breath?
Why bother to explain
If you’ll only hit dead end!
Maybe to be consistent
We have to see both sides
And master understanding
Of other people’s lives
Then curve our words around them
Till they resist no more
Or they have gathered us to them
And the difference becomes the cure
