"I say to myself, I will not mention His name, I will speak in His name no more. But then, it becomes like a fire burning in my heart, imprisoned in my bones, I grow weary holding it in, I cannot endure it." Jeremiah 20:7-10

Silence the Song
I heard the bird sing so sweetly outside my window.
His merry tune woke me each morning.
Now the silence hangs heavy, suffocating my own song.
On the lawn a mass of feathers tells the gruesome tale, and one satisfied cat hides in the bushes, licking his whiskers.
