Smile Henry


Silence, my life is lived in silence.
the only voice I hear is usually my own.
my alone soul, wrestling in the dark pit of thirst.
Panting, crying out in hope of a better and brighter day.

Sun shines but there is no light.
The day is as the night.
The silent thumping of my heart beat reminds me.
that I am alone again.

Spring, winter, summer and fall has come and gone.
the same, the same, nothing different, all the same.
Me, just me, myself and I.
Where is everyone? Where have all the people gone?

The music plays but there are no lyrics.
The streetlights are on but there are no people.
The rain comes down but it is not wet.
The sky is clear but thee is no moon or stars.

When will this silence end?
How can I be set free from this isolation?
Who will rescue me from this pit of loneliness?
Silence, my life is lived in silence.

Poem of the Day

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
