SOUND OF SILENCE


SOUND OF SILENCE
Melvin Banggollay


Sound of silence speaks
When no word will leak
but in every sigh it takes
Thousand words may break.

Silence to some is yes
When one won't confess
his deep consciousness
on things to be professed.

But we can never define
What one has in his mind
If his tongue won't find
Words to tell his heart's line.

Silence must be broken
To vividly show and open
Mysteries that were hidden
in our tongue's silence.
