Keeping quiet might look guilty.
The silence leaves others to imagine.
No words and others find their own to fill the space.
But my conscience is clear as I keep my thoughts to myself.
Instead of responding to threats I take a deep breath and move on.
Instead of reacting to negativity I look instead for something positive to focus on.
The more they talk.
The more they react.
The less I want to give.
There are no words for this, there is no answer.
I know where I stand. I know what happened.
