On the Inside

Thoughts held tight

Multiply in solitude’s echo chamber

These flies hatch from eggs laid deep

Kept cool by winter

Until Spring’s first warmth seeps in

Here they are

Buzzing, banging on glazing

Repeating knock out blows

Frenzied attempts to pass the glass

Crashing time after time

Despite concussive impacts

Leaving sickness, giddiness

Confusion.

.

See the window is open!

Let them fly free

.

n.b. We are not alone.

Voiceless

Mouth moves aping sound

Single simple words suffice

Nothing more to say

.

n.b. Selective mutism is an intriguing behaviour. Despite having the facility to speak there are some people who simply do not.

“Why not?” is a question that remains in the realm of speculation until the person is able to engage in conversation independently.

At the other end of the scale there are those who choose not to listen. This is a different problem; one that involves choices.

Vergangenheitsaufarbeitung

Yesterday bore us

It cannot ever be changed

Tomorrow beckons

.

n.b. How we accept what has happened in our histories and what we plan and do next shapes our futures. What future do you want to work towards?

Vergangenheitsaufarbeitung: Dealing with the past.
