Quote of the day and my thoughts

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
Martin Luther King Jr.

Never be silent. If something is important to you, speak about it. Use your voice. We were given a voice for a reason, never be scared to use it. Silence isnt golden! Its important to tell your story, whatever that story may be!

#Socs:June 1st, silent tears

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is silent/silence. Use one or both in your post. Have fun!

After youve written your Saturday post tomorrow, please link it here to this weeks prompt page and check to make sure its here in the comments so others can find it and see your awesome Stream of Consciousness post. Anyone can join in!

To make your post more visible, use our pretty SoCS badge! Just paste it in your Saturday post so people browsing the reader will immediately know your post is stream of consciousness and/or pin it as a widget to your site to show youre a participant. Wear it with pride!!

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what youre going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry it doesnt matter. Just let the words carry you along until youre ready to stop.

3. I will post the prompt here on my blog every Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say Write about dogs; the prompt will be more like, Make your first sentence a question, Begin with the word The, or will simply be a single word to get you started.

4. Ping back! Its important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write This post is part of SoCS: and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If youre self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

5. Read at least one other persons blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read all of them! If youre the first person to link back, you can check back later or go to the previous week by following my category, Stream of Consciousness Saturday, which youll find below the Like button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if youd like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers youll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post SoCS and/or #SoCS for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!

She sits in silence

Tears stream down her cheeks

And she wonders

will it always be like this?

Will it ever end?

Will this sadness ever lift?

This turmoil, will I ever know peace?

Darkness creeps in

Slowly it envelopes her

Threatening to crush her spirit

It lingers

As she contemplates life

What should she do?

Suddenly like a bolt of lightning

She has an idea

Be positive!

Embrace positivity!

Then maybe, just maybe

The sadness will disapate

Its worth a shot

A shot in the dark

She scrambles to her feet

Punches the air

Yes! She proclaims

I am hear! I can do this!

I am not a slave to this sadness!

Tears no longer stream down her cheeks

She is determined to live life

And live it to the fullest!

Poetry

it didnt take long
for you to break me
take my innocence
make me a puppet
compliant and mute
it didnt take long
for you to silence me
with your threats
it didnt take long
for you to batter and bruise me
so that i had to create
the only ones in whom i could trust
and confide in
it didnt take long
it didnt take long
and now the memories remain
they drive me insane
yes
it didnt take long at all
for all of this to happen
