Silent World - Poem by Joi Till

How do I imagine living in a silent world?
To never hear music or laughter or even crying
To never hear my mom call me her sweetie-be or to hear her say I love you
To never hear someone say happy birthday or even just a pain old hey
To see and feel and taste but never hear the beauties of this world
How do I imagine living in a silent world……a blind world?
How do I imagine living in a silent world….I can’t?

    An interesting read Jay Till

    My dear late grandmother was deaf, almost 100% from the age of 18...bomb blast injury, she was a fine woman, mother and grandmother....we communicated just fine....smiling at you, Tai, imagination is easy if you can empathise, some can some cant...but there are certain things no one can truly express without having the same experience, I do agree.
