Silent Ones - Poem by Lubinda Lubinda

Sometimes people get an advance warning when something really bad is coming so, they live life alone with the eerie feeling because, they don't know when the reaper is coming and would like a little time alone to prepare before he actually gets there coz, they know he's not going to play fair! Sometimes it feels like an earthquake when their body parts start to break and begins falling apart piece by piece and they could do with a little peace! Sometimes no one notices the hidden grim expressions on these people's faces when they'd laugh at all your jokes despite the fact that everything inside them hurts and chokes and they struggle for breath because they know they'll soon leave the earth! Sometimes people perfectly hide the pain that they feel again and again they simply say they're fine they don't complain, neither do they seem to strain even though they know something is wrong because they want to die strong!
