Silent in the chaos

Silent in the chaos

A Poem by 外人 (Gaijin)

Done during a boring class at school.

Silent in the chaos, I'm standing;
amongst the screams and shouts of distant people
staying in this little room of walls, and knowledge, and human captivity
waiting for the bell to cry their freedom.
I don't care about it, since I'm lost in my thoughts;
surfing in the waves of my worries,
flying in the blue skies of my mind chasing for my biggest dreams.
' Shout in the silence, I want and need,
give my secrets away in this empty stage,
scream out my lungs in every single word
give no mercy to this unbreakable silence
Untill I find out,
just like I can't stop the sunset to arrive,
I can't either break the outside silence with my inside chaos.

Author's Note

About grammar:
I apologize if I made some grammar mistakes, English is a foreign language for me so I may make some mistakes you can find silly.
About that ' in the 3rd stanza it stands for "to", I know I had to put an infinitive (to shout) but I didn't like how that "to" sounded so I put the ' in its place.
I know I don't need to say and after a coma (,) but in this case I used it on purpose because it helps make the pause even longer (and that's what i was looking for)
If i made any other mistake, please tell me :)
Hope you liked the poem, I worked really hard on it :)

when silence becomes chaos you must liberate your soul but, when chaos becomes silence you have touched purification and feel helpless to both is only human...

I understand this poem. When we want time to go faster. Time moved too slow and we can begin to think too much. I like this poem. A very good ending to a excellent poem.

Why do I call myself 外人? 外人 is a foreigner, an outsider, therefore we're all, no matter what, 外人. We all live as foreigners in-between two worlds: The wor.. more..
