Don’t stay quiet if you feel like shouting,

But don’t speak if you want to be heard.

Find refuge in the space between letters,

And comfort in the written word.

      Hey William! I've been a pianist for ten years, and I play a lot with my two sisters on the violin and viola.

      Of course the brevity is the real essence and such a strong message the poem delivers. Loved it, the metaphor of written word works wonder here:)

      Girl, I will tell you what people often tell me about some of my work: You have a gift for saying a lot with so little. I'm told that's hard to do, but of you're like me, it's the most natural thing in the world when the words flow from idea to pen effortlessly.

      This poem not only says a lot, it also is very thought-provoking. It can mean a few different things, I think, and no matter how it is interpreted, it is meaningful.

      If you ever publish a collection of your poems please let me know. I want a copy of it.
