The Silent Scream


Screaming is bad for the voice, but it’s good for the heart. Conor Oberst

Lately there are times I just want to scream, not in anger, but shear frustration.  Frustration that I am going through another period of depression.

If I lived somewhere out on an acreage I probably would let out a scream.  Since I do not live somewhere like that, I cannot let out a scream for the neighbors are too close.  More than likely the police would be paying me a visit.  Screaming would be so out of character for me.

So, instead of letting it all out I just do my silent scream!
