Even though some light was coming in you helped slam the door close. For you never gave me “room” to see my mistakes as you gave me the excuse to write them away
Maybe if you let me sit and think instead of try and think for me this eraser would never have come out. I would have heard in the silence what I had done wrong and wrote a whole new book but you helped make sure I never actually got to that chapter. Silence really can be golden for those who have the chance to listen
FOOTNOTE- Although we might want to direct or even scream at a “loved one” going in the wrong direction sometimes we have to wait in silence till they realize they need to turn around.
