While sitting in a quiet room My thoughts become so loud The voices stuck inside my head Somehow become a crowd There's no such thing as silence It's something we can't find An empty space is just a myth The noise is in our mind Whenever you think you're all alone A memory is by your side It's something we cannot control No matter how hard we've tried Even when we're fast asleep A dream will share its voice Hidden things our minds must say And still we have no choice Sit for just a minute or two To see if you resist Your mind will betray your quiet time For silence doesn't exist

Larry I like this poem you wrote.You are right about the silence,because when i think I have the silence, a noise always ruins the quiet moment. I need the silence to think,to relax, to sleep. At times my thoughts get in the way, and keeps me awake it ruins my sleep.
