Silence

 

SILENCE.

 

Can

you

hear?

 

Can you hear me?

Do you see

what I say?

 

How can you speak if you are not silent?

And if you speak, how will you ever hear the silence of others?

The great and haunting echoes of truths untold?

 

Can

you

hear?

 

Can you hear them?

The veins of

Beating Hearts?

 

They are in you, every last one of them.

The streams of stories spilt over earth.

The dirt in your skin, salt of your pores.

 

The voices without go in,

The voice within, all around.

 

Can

you

Hear?

 

Can you hear?
