There's more silence than words
Space and emptiness
It's at the base of all of us
It's the answer to our questions
It will remind you of nothing
Like life,
love and death
But silence was before all
It fills their every breath
Why is there so much pain?

Why is there so much violence?
The word of God is silence
I need to hear
I long to
Please stop this silence
Can not be
traced to anything
Can't be replaced by anything
Is not exchanged with anything
Is the base of everything
