Silence - Poem by Subodini Menon

It calls for great strength

to be silent

when you want

to shout and scream,

to be tough enough

to bottle up your voice

and witness them

destroy your dream,

to stand still

and not resist

the spinning world

and the ensuing vertigo,

to plug your ears

bite your tongue

and whether you want or not,

mutely watch the show.

But that's the thing about silence,

no matter what kind of courage mustered it up,

in the end,

it only weakens you and strengthens them.
