Silence

by CALEB JONES

When a tree falls in the forest
And no one is there to hear
It still makes a sound
But it’s much quieter than this

Children are crying
And mothers are screaming
But still no one hears

An army marches
Building the steady beat of footsteps
Beneath a symphony of desperate cries
But still no one hears

The birds screech in the trees
And the jungle bleeds
But still no one listens

So we hush
Because in a world where screams and sirens clog eardrums
With monotonous indifference
Silence is the only thing that’s loud

Bitnami
