Treasure Island

Ralph Acosta

(November 27th 1988 / Bronx, Ny)

Silence


Silence
Silence…..force that drives the world;
Silence…..love that goes untold;
Silence…..child left to cry;
Silence…..infant without life;
Silence…..lover left alone;
Silence..…writer without a poem;
Silence…..judge who decides our fate;
Silence…..angel filled with hate;
Silence…..warrior who will not fight;
Silence…..heaven without light;
Silence…..man without a mate;
Silence......withdrawal without debate;
Silence…..mercy buried deep;
Silence......hopeful thoughts we keep;
Silence…...world without a choice;
Silence…...people without voice;
Silence.......reaper, with scythe, black cloak;
Silence.......sleeper, dreamer, hoax;
Silence.......keeper of destiny's fear;
Silence.......music we will never hear;
Silence.......human race abhored;
Silence.......our eternal reward....

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire

But if it had to perish twice,
