V is for voices…

v4pThere was a little girl who

lived in a house where no one lost their temper.
Tempers were bad and not allowed.

Sometimes the little girl lost her temper.
It was always a bad thing to do and always meant punishment,
and that sometimes made her lose her temper again.

Anger or disagreements in her house meant silence.

Sometimes the silence lasted a long time.

When it went on and on the silence was heavy and horrible.
She just wanted to hear a voice again,
even one raised in anger would be okay.


All the little girl would want was to hear a voice
because sometimes the silence was so loud it hurt.

    1. It is sad… and it was never resolved or overcome. I try to speak even when it is difficult…though I am not always successful.

    1. When communication is most difficult is usually when it is most needed. I try to remember this when I want to draw back or away because I am uncomfortable.
