Silence, Why?

Fear of commitment
Fear of not knowing enough
Thought of not being good enough..

Fear of being silenced
Fear of going unheard
Thought that someone else speaking is enough..

Fear of expectations
Fear of saying no
Thought that it doesn't matter..

Fear of speaking the truth
Fear of hearing one's own truth
Thought of disturbing the apparent equilibrium..

Fear of one's power
Fear of another's power
Thought that we are powerless..

Fear of being the only one speaking
Fear of being taken for granted
Thought that everyone is silent, so why bother..
