Silent Voices.

Silent Voices.

A Poem by Raheem Lyttle Kiyaga

If you have much, give of your wealth; if you have little, give of your heart

As the night goes and lights falls,
I just can't go with it's caressing darkness,
Know there is something that,
Something that must have been left behind,
The disemboided voices that you can't see
Of silent voices and unsaid words,
Well, this time give me all tympanums,
And the voices locked inside
Won't remain unrevealed,
But believe in the silent voices.
I wanna leave my impressions
On your hearts of sympathy,
Caring, solace and helpful ones,
No more wandering this blue track,
But to say it loud and be understood,
Place your sympathetic hand onto my chest
And feel the silent sounds inside me.
" After silence, that which comes to
Expressing the inexpressible is music,
I wish you'd pay more attention
To my favourite song 'cuz the lyrics
Sing the silent voices ",
That would have been heard or uttered
By any Open Mic, Spokenword artiste.
I am pleased that a day from now,
Silent voices will be heard,
Rising through the air,
Be heard as they should,
Be spoken as they reverberate,
Inside me.
As I am to leave,
I will leave my whorls here,
That I was here for silent voices.
