Senses - Poem by Sathya Narayana

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+ (Report)Reply

    It is so sad that what you have drawn here is true. Our senses know the misery of the oppressed, b ut how many act to change? Thank you Bob (Report)Reply

    This is excellent work and very difficult to come by as you use double meaning in your structure, Closed eyes can see, Deaf ears can hear ect.... I thought your imagery was carefully used and potrayed a very well painted picture..

    freedom from tyranny
    is the road to finding righteous sense
    comply not with dictatorial command
    to establish coexistence on our land

    A well written poem & your foot note explains the mood all clear! Yet people do
    interpret according to their own frame of reference! The first two paras suggested to me - the power of SILENCE! While the last para, - the Judgement Day!
