silence of growth

the silence of growth.

hold it gently in your hand,

this multitude of growing souls.



waiting can lead to breaking

if you don't hold it all gently

and remember

the silence of growth.

the quiet, private nature

of growth

which does not speak up

or report daily measurements.

that prefers to chew and digest,

to wait, and consider,

and to treasure up in the heart

and wait

and suddenly it's been five years

and you don't see things the way you did before

and you can't quite innumerate the reasons why

because you were growing all along

silently, pondering.

the nature of growth.

so, hold your causes gently,

and those souls carefully,

because they are growing,

silently, and beautifully.
