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 thought...you 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....
