In The Silence



This is a response to the crushing pressure that society places on people to conform and the killing of the human spirit by it.

Walking in the bowels

of the vipers nest.

Lying in the Silence

never to know rest.


Living with the pain

of egos to fulfill

screaming in the Silence

emotions to be stilled.


Twisting in the torments

emotions that are freed.

Surviving in the Silence

nothing left to me.


Stumbling through the mist

never where to know.

Running in the Silence

nowhere left to go.


Dissolving in the winds

destruction of the soul.

Remaining in the Silence

forever is the toll.


Ebbing of the spirit

nothing left to give.

Dying in the Silence

wanting but to live.
