A Reflection for Rosh Hodesh Av
(For the personal and collective good)
When nothing can be said, or should be said,
Stillness is not an option but a must,
For the sake of all others and oneself.
Why is that a challenge for leaders, for us?
Why must hearing oneself, without purpose,
Be for aggrandisement and nothing else?
When care for all needs, one holds one’s tongue:
“He who conquers himself is greater than
He who conquers cities;” then all rally
Together, to support the cause for all
With words that bring all together, as one!
