The Eloquence Of Silence - Poem by ifedayo oshin

We speak too much of so little
Like we truly know that much of so much
Yet there’s so much
We know so little about
Speech ought to be
For knowing minds, not talking lips
Those who know as much ought to
Speak so little of much
Not of secrecy, or pride
But of eloquent silence
In which pure knowledge find profound expression.
