A Saga of Silence

Moments of silence flow
Into hours, days, months, and years

Sometimes I am muted involuntarily
Sometimes my words are

Transformed into tranquility willingly
Sometimes my yearning to shout out

Dies on a deaf heart
Sometimes I am not sure

Whether I deserve to talk
Most of times my words form

Wings and fly away to distant lands
And yet

No one ever recognizes my silence
None persuades for my words
