Silent Ones - Poem by Lubinda Lubinda
Sometimes people get an advance
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!
