The silent voice


It speaks no words

but is the more expressive,

that voice from within

that never can be silenced

for its obstinate persistance

in insisting on the truth

however inconvenient and unpleasant.

I am not that voice but only its interpreter

in searching out the universal meaning

of what’s going on behind the scenes

of this deceptive world of failures and delusions

where the truth is anywhere except in its reality;

and what is really going on is always underground

perceptible to only those who listen with their souls

to the eternal voice of silence.
