Mute Moon - Poem by Mwende Mutiso

Mute moon
Stares down in silence

Like
A woman scarred
Stripped of her dignity
Too afraid to speak

Like
A deprived child
Hungry, grieving and waiting
Too tired to speak

Like
A King enthroned
Looking at his eager subjects
Aloof in silence

Like
An enlightened scientist
Holding secrets of the future
But bound by an oath of silence

Like
A wrinkled wise old man
Concealing secrets of the past
Better left unsaid

Wise moon
Mute moon
Stares down in silence
