Silence - Poem by Abdul Wahab

When expression fails
Silence speaks
When words create din
Silence is bliss
While wise speaks
I listen and learn
When fools quarrel
I remain silent
To avoid risk
Of breaking peace,
My silence is
Full of wisdom
For the wise
I speak only
When words are
More valuable than silence.

    SIlence can mean so many things. Many times a wise man willl remain silent. A fool is like a babbling brook. Always bubbling over. nice poem (Report) Reply
