the danger of silence


What if you decide never to speak up?

What’s lost, never said, left out?

What transformation will never take place?

Who will never experience your brilliance?

Who will never see your lighthouse beckoning?

The danger isn’t what will happen to you, but what will never happen because you choose not to use your voice.


Every so often I get inspired to write poems, and this one just felt like I should actually share it.  I hope it sparks something in you… if it does, share with me in the comments below!
