Silence as Weapon

Silence as Weapon

heart wears battle scars

inflicted by throwing knives

silent and deadly

ignorant of  an alleged sin

provoking your disdain

oh so unworthy am I

to hear your angry words

no…

waste your contempt on

weaker vessels

I am weary of cowardice

ignoring truth makes it grow stronger

in the blackened corners you hide it in

deflecting blows from silence

as weapon
