Silence My Music

Why, I still don't know
The sun on me never shone
Belittling eyes at me stare
Cursing tongue emitting fire

I live and breathe alone
Sadness my only companion
I despise to see the light
Darkness, the only retreat

I befriend only shadows
With me, I keep them close
Silence is music to my ears
Always makes me shed tears

If to mankind I'm a disgrace
I will long for a place
Which is beyond the sky's face
Even if it means my grave

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.
