The Silence



Emptiness please look away,
I need a time alone,
To mend this broken heart,
That's shattered in Silence.

The silence of the trumpet,
When there's nothing to celebrate.
The silence of the glass,
Just before the floor is trashed.

The silence of the lights,
Out there in a big city crash.
The silence of the powerful,
Trade some souls in turn for cash.

The silence of some who talk, not speak,
The silence of the empty hands,
The silence of the armless soldiers,
The silence of the legless kids.

Their tears have gone dry,
Their words aren't to be heard.
While some sit on a throne in sympathy, 
Look at the mirror and taste the silence.
