Masked Silence


I am the tilt of the tower of Pisa
I am the journey in vain without visa
I am the child that was aborted and severed
I am the heartbeat of animals butchered
I am the morsel that to fill stomachs failed
I am the unshed tears that in eyes desiccate
I am the rain that never fell in deserts
I am the bloodshed of crusade illogical
I am the absent pearl in the oyster shell
I am the leaf that will never breathe if fell
I am the blood oozing from an open gash
I am the abusing root that stands against
Beware! I am the hatred of neglected, digressed
I am masked silence of oppressed and suppressed
