  11633.     

Silence Is Power

you're of age now,
you look older to what you actually are.
i do not call upon you to respect me,
i do not impose it, i like to earn it,
i will not say a word, that i am much better than you,
no, i will not show it, i know, i am,
when you look at me without a word,
i bow my head, courteous to what the world
offers me
you go where you want to go
conquer the world as you may
with all might
and force and

disrespect, cutting the trees of power
and mowing the grasses of the common people
leveling
digging graves and showing that you deserve
this
to live like a king of the frogs
you croak like Tarzan
as i sit still and listen and look with authority

you must know that silence is power
and noise cannot enslave
you must fathom the wisdom of the deepest sea
how it rules the depths of the earth
without the sound of its waves

silence is power and i am making it grow
inside my heart
you heard it well enough as you have decided
to make your mouth shut.

  11634.     

Silence Sputtering....

rain from
the roof tops
finding its
way to the gutter
exiting
at a post of the house
near me

sputtering
my silence that hides
in my
unutterances
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11635.     

Silencio....

Still on the
Insistence of the fading
Lights where the boredom is not well
Estimated, despite the presence of the
Nonsensical, numbness never felt that much
Craving for more of the clues for more
Inspiration, on such a lovely
Opulence.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11636.     

Silent Cocoon

at the end
to make yourself a shield from all those
invasive matters of the
heart
you keep yourself enclosed in that
same cocoon

always that same same cocoon
hard so hard outside

this time you promise yourself
there shall be no butterfly ending

more of keeping
the silence of that cocoon

hanging upon a twig
under those
dead leaves
 
RIC S. BASTASA
