In Silence! - Poem by Roy Mburia

Today I grow in silence,
An isolated trail,
A secret tale,
No tags of praise,
Goons to cheer,
Silence chose me,
Far from the lead,
My breadth on hold,
The sound of silence,
A listening art,
The last and the least,
Bellied men pulling beards,
For the mic’ and the cameras!

Within the noise of men,
Silence makes bare its radiance,
Carelessly, in silence,
Trees kiss and hug,
To the will of wind;
True love abiding,
A perfect spread of peace!

It’s a hard space,
In a loud world;
War for name and fame,

I’m glad for silence,
In silence I’m in calm,
In silence, I’m a winner,
There is peace unknown,
Today belong to the noisy,
The furious and the cunning,
Always winning,
Tomorrow the silence will speak.
