Silence - Poem by Aila El Edroos

when i close my eyes
i can still see the darkness
when i shut my ears
i can still hear the silence

what is it in this world that's true
mouth is shut, but i can sing
i'm awake eventhough i sleep
is emptiness really empty?

when i say my heart stop beating
it's beating anyway
somebody tell me what the truth is
and why there is the sound of the silence
