Silence This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By Abbey H, State College, PA

My biggest fear is silence.
The kind that you can only feel;
the sudden halt of a turning wheel.
An abrupt abundance of vulnerability
that can suffocate any sense of tranquility.

My biggest fear is silence.
The kind that separates the closest friends;
the lack of speech above all transcends.
A growing gap between two of the same;
an arrow missed with perfect aim.

My biggest fear is silence.
The kind that mutes a scream within
when trials triumph and passion wears thin.
The deprivation of freedom of choice
that can devocalize a once known voice.

But most of all, I’m afraid of living a silent life.
The kind that no one cares to hear.
