I kept quiet
Life would sometimes throw up sudden random questions that it perhaps expects us to answer.
The unexpected death of a loved one occured, then came the questions, but answers were hard to find so I kept quiet.
Relationships were tried due to reasons beyond control, cracks began to show and breakups were inevitable yet I kept quiet.
All hell broke loose on the job, accusations flying and confidence diving, yet I kept quiet.
A good friend is going through a very rough patch and needs great amounts of time and resources to get out of it, yet I kept quiet.
Someone is being abused and the thought that it might really be happening is too hard to handle, so I kept quiet.
I kept quiet because I did not know the answer.
I kept quiet because I felt hurt by the actions of others against me.
I kept quiet because I did not know how to help.
I kept quiet because I did not have enough to give.
I kept quiet because I was discouraged too.
I kept quiet because I had messed up badly and was too ashamed to acknowledge it.
I kept quiet because I did not want my situation to be exposed.
I kept quiet because I was so scared.
I kept quiet because the challenge looked too great to surmount.
I need to find the strength to open up my mouth and speak! I need to find the courage to stand for what is right even when it may momentarily cause me grief.
