Silence and Words...

Introspection and retrospection...these were the two things i'd been busy with for the past few days. Its been almost two whole years since i had last given some serious thought to myself...and these are the things i realised....or rather am trying to realise...
Silence does speak more than Words. But, only at times. Silence heals. Silence soothes. Silence smiles at you when you are all alone in the darkest hour of the night assuring you of the light of the drawn...
Silence can be more eloquent than Words. At times it expresses more than Words ever can. Silence is the language which can speak volumes without the help of any other medium of communication.A simple gesture is all that is needed.
But then, Silence has its downside too.When misinterpreted, Silence can prove disastrous! Words, unlike Silence, have direct consequences. Words are unspoken promises made by one to another. Silence is a non-committal state where, if given a chance, doubts and confusion may reign supreme.
I feel that maybe...just maybe, it is all a matter of the mind, the most complex and creative feature that God has bestowed us, humans, with! And well, as we all know no one is in total control of themselves. In life there are always instances of regret...but then again there are also enough chances to improve....and a lot to hope for...
Words do have a lot of power...and sometimes they can be a lot more powerful than Silence. Words, when treated correctly can be more soothing than Silence. Words when chosen carefully can heal wounds faster than Silence ever can. Words are the most expressive expressions in our world. Words can also stir revolutions.
But neither Silence nor Words can alone suffice our need to express and communicate...
Actually its very difficult to say which is better...i haven't been able to arrived at a conclusion yet...
till then..like all others...i remain a confused soul... choosing one over the other depending on the situation.

Clockwork

To be able to reach out. To want to know. Somewhere lost in the crowd. Alone and scared. Looking for a way to make it seem worth the whil...
