When Silence Speaks! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

A graveyard speaks
In silence
Of the souls
That rests in peace.

Monuments speaks in silence of
The untold Mysteries.

A library speaks
In silence
Of the books
That nourishes knowledge.

The stories speaks
In silence
Of the words Untold.

Jokes speaks in
Silence of the Pain
In humorous way.

Love speaks in Silence
Of the unspoken desire.

Weeping in silence speaks
Of wound that
Cut deep down the heart.

Poems speak in silence
Of the strong words
That bring pain or joy.

Eyes speaks in silence
Of love or hatred,
Mixture of emotions.

Words speaks in silence
Of the thoughts that it went thru.
Thoughts speaks in silence
Of the surroundings that it went thru
Actions speaks in silence
Of the pain or love it went thru
Revenge speaks in silence
Of the hatred that it went thru.

If Injustice is silenced...
Appreciate the Silence of deaf and dumb.

Mind speak in silence
Of the calmness
That it longed for.

Silence is golden
As long as one is not victimized by Silence!
