Nothing to Say

Bite my lip, my mind is quiet,
No need to do what could cause a riot,
Which part of my personality wants to talk?
Why is stillness how I should walk?
Silent contemplation in this situation,
A subjective tense; here & now in position,
Power over others I do not have,
It’s enough to be me & to be glad,
Others living their life & their business,
So I’ll do something with mine, I guess,
Knowing what I’m able to do is a start,
Emerging together, yet so far apart,
The cause is clear with an affect by God,
For now I’ll agree & simply nod.
