Silence is Traitorous


Humans need words with sounds
And then hear the tone of your voice
They want to analyze the picture on your face
And not to suspect you wrongly
Even though you are angered
Or have failed, speak a word
A word of peace and not revenge
In what situation but must be understood
Humans want a response
Negative or positive
They are relieved or angered
But that is what it takes
People like the silence of nature
and not of humans
Words have hands of thorns
And they sit not
They are wide ranged
They are heard, understood and misunderstood
They run so faster than the bullet
But silent response brings confusion
Silence accepts all defeat
But a word makes us happy
We need to hear words
And from our leaders,
And elders and our friends
And from our loved ones

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
