Silence Me

Silence Me

A Poem by Maria F. Rojas

Arrived to this world


Met the strangers


Mom?  Dad?


Strangers were my parents


Grew up by day by day


By time by time I never understood


why were everything so silent?


I was forced to wear the hearing aides


and the nosies were welcomed


into my ears


into my brain


What are those nosies?


A stranger came into my poor home


waved with the flying hands


I understood nothing


but heard the strange voices


came from the moving mouth


From what I saw


From what I heard


From what I felt


was the voice


that spoke


Hello you, what a little girl!


I, of course, stared


and smiled like I could understand


From there


I learned how to fly my hands


I learned how to express my emotions


I learned how to speak


Not that easy but yet I still lived silently


Felt like I was the only silence me


Everyone laughed, and shared theirs to each other


Nosies made by everywhere


I could not catch up all at once


But I could choose what I wanted to hear


with my little best friends


that were my hearing aides


Time passed by


Year passed by


Age passed by


By how I live my silently life


made me who I am today


is that


I am deaf


living a silent world


Silence Me

This was beautifully written, and it's a very intriguing look into the mind of someone who is deaf. This is a wonderful work - keep it up! :)

Nice work on this poetic expression of give us the view of how when one is silent ot deaf and seeking to either be heard or to hear life from the inside...we who can hear and speak sometimes take for granted our gifts...

nice work...

wow silence brings knowledge, at least i think so .. talk slow and think fast. this moves well, the feel that you gave me is quite good. being able to see but not be understood.,.. even as an adult i feel that way.
the strangers,...the man, the world , the flying hands, all make no sense when they arent understood, at least not their voices rather their movements... reading body language to understand ..hell yeah....
