Soft and loud

By Vladimir Huber

Because I talk soft
I prefer not to talk from too far
Why should I be loud
if I feel more comfortable
relating with people in a soft way?

Loudness is a way of hiding an internal weakness
since I don’t want to hide my weaknesses
or try not to, because I do, anyway
why should I put a curtain over my uncertainties?

Maybe if I let the air refresh my soul
I can let my mind and heart
get fresher and renewed
