Silence - Poem by Cess Njuki

Silence please......
I repeat....shhh
Can you hear that?
That is the beauty of silence
Can you feel it too?
How about it?
The walls too, could be enjoying, with so much laughter,
The silence.
But hold on!
What is silence anyway?
What behind it?
Solitary, pain, joy, hope..
Silence please give me answers,
Why do you take over?

Oh! Yes! Maybe
It is time need be
For rest
It's 2.50am!
