Silence Kills - Poem by Chanel Jackson
Images flash in my mind
like pictures on a movie screen
playing over and over again.
Do I say something
or keep quiet?
The Silence pains me
ringing relentlessly in my ears.
Silence is like a slow death
eating away at your skin
like maggots on a rotten piece of mutton.
I must tell
For the sake of all man.
The eyes of silence burn through me
and thoughts overflow in my head.
My body torn as I try to fight
I watch bodies hang lifeless
as Silence advances in this battle.
This insignificant war of abstract colors
slowly killing the true essence of man.
