Is a strong word

It precedes and follows times of impact

The “quiet” before the storm

Is an indication of how volatile the storm will be

In human nature; quiet may be

A time of preparation

A time of retrospect; meditation

A time of grief; respect

It may also be an indication

Of loneliness

Of alienation

Of hopelessness

Quiet should always be listened to

Quiet should be respected

In my life; quiet is an indication

To listen to my body

To listen for the answers to my prayers

I gain strength

Within those moments of quiet

I hear what God knows I need to hear
