The Silent Way.

The Silent Way. long poem

Photo by smkybear


I am quiet. 
I am the observer amisdst the chaos, 
I am beneath the shallow water,
Below the deep oceans, 
Where solace and peace settle, 
Making the place their home. 

I am quiet. 
I do not need any justification to be given, 
I do not need any force to be driven,
My routes are not fixed yet,
But as the road goes, my ways will set. 

I am quiet. 
Just like the stars who do not have pride
When they shine. 
Just like the tree who gets cut 
But doesn’t whine. 

I am quiet. 
Even if you be judgemental 
I am  no one to change your mind. 
If you be considerable,
I am not the one who will be over kind.

I am quiet. 
And there is nothing wrong in being so. 
I raise my voice when I need to. 
And I stand by my words when I intend to. 

I am quiet. 
Call me proud or an introvert, 
My attitude will remain the same,
Just like my self and my tastes,
It won’t change for anyone’s sake.

I am quiet.
The ones who know me, know it. 
Quiet not because of any incident, 
Neither any accident. 
Quiet as  I love to be myself, 
Just like the baby who loves to be 
In his own innocence.

The Silent Joy

When pillows of comfort become your enemy, Understand sorrow is going to be, Life will always check you, Life will always test you, It may try to know how patient or impatient you are, But all life’s long way you

My Silent Plant

My Silent Plant short poem

Part of my family, you’ve always been. Earth is our house; the flower pot is Eden. We are a union of Chlorophyll and melanin. Chlorophyll gives you an ever-green colour. Melanin determines my skin colour. I still however, don’t know

Silent Prayers

Silent Prayers short poem

The hand comes out of the rubble to throw the musky odor of a cross-legged monk under the ginkgo tree. An apparition comes outside the body of a fan-shaped snake; ignites the wolf. We were hungry, we were thirsty. Untwining
