    wow...

    For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction
    And for every thing there is a time and a season
    One to scream and one to whisper… :sand:
    For without the scream…there could never be a whisper
    (and vice versa)
    And while they both may be capable of achieving the same results…
    Depending on the circumstances…
    One or the other, may not be appropriate

    My mother always said, “a soft answer turneth away wrath”
    But I also once heard that…"the valiant taketh by force"
    Sometimes it’s not only important to receive results
    But to simply…be heard

    A whisper’s abilities is quite intriguing within itself…
    How could something so soft…so thin, have such great power
    (....so amazing)
    But isn’t it the scream that lead our people into battle
    And often motivates and keeps the momentum
    When your spirit is running on empty…
    Even babies cry out…when entering our world
    And there the mother is…hushing the baby with her whisper

    The never-ending cycle of the scream and the whisper…
    Their existence is united: A co-existence


    And just as you’ve given this refreshing perspective…
    We clearly see…
    They both have a purpose, sometimes the same
    But nonetheless…we need them both…

    *Whispering *…Thanks for balancing my Scream with the Whisper’s hush…


    Having released my scream…
    I now feel justified to
    Whisper…
    Until the Season of the Scream
    Re-visits my spirit…


    Wonderful peace…Much love to you Both…Queen & Keita :grouphug:
    Can’t wait to grace the page together :wink:

    I'm not quite sure I understand this...

    According to my understanding, as minute and limited as it may be, we are all dichotomies. We all have a higher-self and a lower-self. We are the BREATH made FLESH, thus we are the truth and falsehood strangely mixed. Given that pragmatic, the WHISPER cannot exist without the SCREAM nor vice versa…

    So while enjoyed this poem…I’m not certain I understand this preamble???


    And then again maybe I'm not supposed to...much love :luvv:

    Oh, that's easy brother. I don't usually write behind anyone's poetry unless it's a collab. I never write off of anyone's work at all. Therefore it is a rare thing for me to encounter something that stimulates me to break a sacred rule of mines. Her work did that...it was great !

    Peace out, Keita Kenyatta

    Very nice piece, there are those times when a whisper can speak volumes. Of course there are those times when you need to scream your lungs out. Keep those flows rolling off that pen.
