just random. read!
woke up to an empty house
quiet, not even the air conditioner on
take a shower, starts thinking
can I go the whole day in silence?
don’t touch the computer, tv, radio, or mp3 player
the days home from school
I only see family
I only see people
in between classes
practically is silence
no computer, tv, radio, or mp3 player
just voices of people
shuffling of feet
whirs of the elevator
the computer isn’t for personal use
it’s for academic purposes
computer = facebook
computer= seclusion from family
my room is my solace, even when it is not the cleanest
my bed I can stay there, if someone locked me in my room
I probably wouldn’t notice until I had to go use the bathroom.
I can go a while without eating, without interruption, without the need for voices.
the screen is my friend..
can I go a day in silence?
if I started today, I have already lost
I used the computer to write this.
when the family comes home,
do I greet them?
that would break my silence
whats the purpose behind being silent?
protest? the silent treatment, sit-ins, loitering
fame? mimes, statues
In opera people that are dying sing the loudest
in movies when people die, doesn’t someone always start crying? or screaming?
When do we break our silence?
when things are wrong.
we advocate, we start to do things. NAACP, #syriasly, Anonymous, SAVE, United Way, Bully
Sometimes when things become prevalent, supporters that were there before the fame
"Where were you?" "Thanks for the support!"
The negative things have more influence than the positive. Invisible Children
What’s my point?
if you’ve read this far, or if you’re like me and just skim and look for important or interesting words. *
what ever you do, it’s important.
whether you make noise, or stay silent
sit on the fence, or join a side
it doesn’t matter what you do as long as it’s what you want
that may not be true
people may have valid arguments
im ready to hear them.
but that was my point of all this
Can you go a day in silence?
Who would you have to ignore?
Would you warn people about the silence or just go?
Do you think people would notice? I think it’s only when you say something, people say something back.
