Breaking the Silence


The power of silence is the most underrated aspect of human emotions. Most often we fail to comprehend it’s true meaning and power because we all form an opinion about it. When used correctly it can change a lot of things – internally and externally.

“Silence can answer the question words may fail to answer. If you want to know what silence can do, keep silence!”
― Ernest Agyemang Yeboah


Power of Silence


a thousand words
a minute
talking non stop
to everyone around me;

blabbering some nonsense
humming a song
playing on the radio
I am just a bundle of fun;

everything changed and
words that flowed
without a hurdle
stuttered, stumbled
and stopped;

everything changed
when you came near ,
when you came near me
the words just disappeared;

sound of words that engulfed the place (a minute ago)
is now replaced with a strange silence
a strange silence
befell on me;

a thousand words
before you entered
is now replaced by
a thousand questions
that I am asking now
a thousand questions
I am asking now
to break this silence;

losing my sanity
when you are around
I am trying hard
to find the answer for this silence
I am trying hard
to find the words
I am trying hard
to breaking the silence forever!
