So...why do I have to talk?

I wanted to come home to a quiet evening
I needed to spend quiet time reflecting, and reading, and catching up on some emails

Well, it was good to connect with my roommate
Some pretty funny comments and spontaneous moments in there

And yet there was lots of needless chatter
My soul longs for quiet
But my mouth just won't pull it off

Engaging is good
Yet, maybe it could have been different

Could it have been more quiet?
Could there have been more listening, more reflection?
Would me soul be more at ease now...?

How to live
in silence
and in connection

I want to learn more silent, withing the conversation
Father...reveal my heart
Grow a listener
A learner
A quiet one
