The Depth Of Silence - Poem by Kenneth Maswabi

Beneath the silent vow
Lies a silent roar
Swallowed by the unforgiving rage
Echoed through the darkness
In a ghostly growl

Beneath the silent sobs
An emotional thunderstorm rages on
Unperturbed by the empty face
Gusts of wind blows a war trumpet
In a final declaration of war

Beneath the shallow waters of silence
A monster roams free
Unchained and hungry
Ready to devour
Swallow whatever moves the silence

Beneath the volcanic wall of silence
Hot lava brews undisturbed
Punching holes into the fabric of life
Puffing through the nasal crevices
Toxic gaseous fumes escape
Loaded with hot angry chemical bullets
A massive eruption waiting to happen

Beneath the empty shadows of silence
A beast lays a trap
Protracting its fangs in readiness
Prepared to do the unthinkable
The vicious rape of a mother

The depth of silence
Is deadly and toxic
Bustling with dangerous beasts
Betraying the garden of silence above
