a moment of silence

Why is it we give a moment of
silence to the ones who have passed
don’t get me wrong I mean no disrespect
but I presume where ever they are now
is probably much more quiet then here
of course there is that
“party in the sky”

but why isn’t it that we give a
moment of silence to the living
I know I need it much more
to
silence the screams
the hatred
the anger the fear
and what ever
cacophonous
grind I find myself in

for just
a moment of silence
sit
close my eyes
and
hear nothing but air
soft
light
motionless air
