The Shadow in the Silence

What is silence?
Is it like a quiet cave,
With no one around?
Is it what shows who we are?

Silence is like a mother bird without her chicks by her side,
Sad, and lonely

Silence is what holds us back,
From standing up for ourselves,
There is silence everywhere
We can’t run away from it
