Aggression - Poem by Meena Kandasamy

Ours is a silence
that waits. Endlessly waits.

And then, unable to bear it
any further, it breaks into wails.

But not all suppressed reactions
end in our bemoaning the tragedy.

Sometimes,
the outward signals
of inward struggles takes colossal forms
And the revolution happens because our dreams explode.

Most of the time:

Aggression is the best kind of trouble-shooting.

    Sometimes the storm brewing inside comes out its own and show our true self. A nice poem about play of emotions in us.
    Ours is a silence
    that waits. Endlessly waits.

    And then, unable to bear it
    any further, it breaks into wails.
    ... is true.Very nice.

    A study in human psychology which reveals that one has to fight for his or her survival in a given situation. Thanks for a nice presentation. I quote a few lines:
    Ours is a silence
    And then, unable to bear it
    any further, it breaks into wails.... our dreams explode.
