Silent Sea

feet in the water

I sit by the Silent Sea

as the day drowns in the dusk

I sit on the land of you and me

with a tornado of grief among all of us

 

I listen to the Silent Sea

as she begins to weep

I listen the mothers' cry 

with heads on their sons' bare wounded chest

 

I see the Silent Sea 

as she is turning red at the shore

I see my brothers being buried

and their corpses bathed in blood

 

I touch the Silent Sea

as I feel anger and screams in her silence

I touch the war marks on my arm

no more giving me pride but only grief

 

I am a victor in the war

but a loser here of course 

the human in me is not letting me breathe

maybe that's why I am more a Silent Sea than me
