Shades of Life..

The Unspoken.. - Poem by Shades of Life..

A lull before the storm,
The aftermath of cries..
Fear of loosing your beloved..
The pain of good byes..

The innocent hungry eyes,
Starving and searching for food..
The love of our parents,
That we never understood..

The loss of a mate,
On the day their' souls met..
The million blunders,
That one could never regret..

The touch of a dying person,
Suddenly gripping your hand..
The frozen eyes of those,
Unjustly punished and hanged..

Ssssshhhh! ! ! !
Can you hear this? ?
This sound that blesses..this sound that ruins,
Be it a disaster or moment of ecstasy,
Its all silence.. Silence...that speak volumes! !

Silence of great love,
Silence of painful deceit,
Silence of embittered friendship,
Silence of indelible defeat..
Silence between father and son,
When father fails to explain his stand..
Silence between husband and wife,
When he fails to give her a hand...
Silence of a happy mother,
Looking at her sleeping child..
Silence of a big hug,
When two sisters fought and cried..
Silence of a priest,
Offering to god his prayer..
Silence of mourners,
Sharing their sorrow and despair..
Silence of an old man,
Being told his only son died..
Silence of those who have failed,
Leading to another suicide..

Oh! ! What is it..peace or horror,
What is it..that I’m feeling..
This ultimate language..this divine beauty,
Is it hurting me or am I healing..?

Ssshhhhh! !
Listen to it..the sound of silence..
And set all your fears free..
Speak to yourself..laugh aloud..
Because life's yours if u allow it to be..
