Shouting Inside the Silence by Susan Ksiezopolski

Poem title: Shouting Inside the Silence Poet Name: Susan Ksiezopolski Poem begins: Shout Shout out loud Silence only feeds the demons Hungry for solitude Reach out from inside Where your shattered brokenness Tears you to pieces Your sparkle Snuffed out in the cracked darkness Put a spotlight on the ache of agony That only speaks the language of lies Talking the conversation of nightmares Let the light cleanse Away the debris of pity Open the gate Let your lost voice Get found On the rocky path to unity Ushering you home Back to your self Back to your life No matter how rocky the path It leads to wholeness Listen to your voice Shouting to be heard Shouting to connect You back to your story This is where the Restorative conversation begins In the language of Love and forgiveness Participating in The fullness of life End of Poem.
