Senses Poem by Sathya Narayana


Rating: 4.9

Closed eyes too can see
Visuals on heart-easel
Tight lips too can speak
In eloquence expressive silence
Deaf ears too can hear
Thundering miseries all around

Searching senses work
even when locked
Hungry are they; for truth
Eager are they; to revolt
Sans smut and rust
They know their worth

(This poem is about oppression. Oppressors think they are perpetrating their evils without anyone's knowledge. But there are searching senses around, that are sans smut & rust, which are live to their surroundings even when shut and ready to revolt)

We are blind because we choose to be and deaf because we will not hear and so we suffer constantly .Because of omnipresent fear we will be called upon to do whatever needs to be done. I would much rather it were you i do not want to be the one The chosen one to lead the way though I wll gladly follow you But more than that I dare not say because I am a coward too

we see with our inner eye, in fact, the oppressed can be very eloquenti n their silence. but why do we feel so helpless. we have no real leaders or herioes to fight tyranny. Collins has made a good observation about the double meaning in your composition. deeply insightful.10+
