She was looking for peace, solace and bliss in silence,
But silence was scaring, silence was devouring,
Silence was dark, silence was cold,
Suddenly she was afraid of the silence.

Her heart raced and questioned the silence,
Only the machines replied from that silence,
She could listen to her heart in that silence,
She could fight the demons from her childhood fairy tales in that silence.

Silence let her be she,
Silence showed her what she actually should be looking for…
