This one is for the broken, hiding behind invisible bruising. For the forgotten and the ones who have forgotten us, like the misunderstood misfits. Who howl at the moon, look beyond the stars, for some form of understanding. For the one you labeled a weirdo. Who's life is a cocktail of corruption, struggling with ignorant co-existence. For the ones who have lost their voice, unable to speak unspoken truths, like the child of stolen innocence. For the abused, the violated, the humiliated. Those who chose to run and are still running. Hope you find a safe haven to call home. Like the ones who no longer dream, due to demonic intrusions. This one is for those who continue to love ferociously. Breathing genuinely in a world of hypocrisy and artificial actions. Who's hearts are an archive of old songs, lost in the concept of time. Their piano keys of darkness and light, have eroded with each tremor, but still refuse to sell their emotions. Preferring an overdose of life lost in lullabies of rain - battling against ugliness of adversity. Their hope eradicates thunder, emanating clear blue skies - souls illuminating like a ring of fire. We all have a purpose, a personal potential, find it, feel it, be it. There will always be a mountain, with wandering wayward winds - but there are several ways to conquer it - just believe in the beauty of your being. We are warriors. Simple Musing Silent One 30 November 2020

Silent One, your potent and expressive pen speaks for those fighting the fight, whether inwardly or outwardly, with such profound elegance and eloquence. Inspiring ink in every line, awesome word combos everywhere; "cocktail of corruption" - I especially loved. I admire your last empowering stanza and the uplifting "rise up" spirit of your last line. We all need to fight for the betterment of humanity. Your are a brilliant, rousing and illuminating poet, my friend. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

You will always only be you, body soul and being, and as all us have have been indoctrinated by and ifluennced by norms of different sections of society, we all react differently, or else we would have now what will one day become true, a world of clones. Be who you are do what you do, be bold and go forth as a warrior. Your poem seeks a utopia, and as there is none dear friend, we make do with what we have and try to do our best . A deep, thought provoked poem. Love it. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

Silent One, you're a poet of vast talent and range. I think you could take one word, and write wonders around it. I hear Britain is quite locked down. I hope you and your family stay safe and healthy. All the Best. ~

"The belief in the beauty of the soul" and in the power of words to voice and convey our solid convictions.. The belief in acts of Love and valour to better a world devastated by chaos and help humanity that is moaning under the sufferings of hate and rejection.. A mission of fearless and compassionate warriors and poets of powerful swords! A beauty, Silent One! Always a great pleasure to read your profound thoughts and wonderful poetry.. My deepest regards and blessings.

Many will relate to these brilliant lines of yours , many will take your advice, rise up and be strong, sadly many will still wallow in their own self induced pity. The climb ahead is never an easy one. Though as you say ' there are several ways to conquor it. We are all warriors in our own way. A wonderful poem Si always a fave to add to the list. ....Maria Hugs

Yes, There are many who are broken and I probably must believe that each person has something somewhere in their being that is broken. Creative work. Thanks for the visit to my page. Sara..

Thought provoking write SO, we take so much for granted in our lives yet many are persecuted, tortured, fleeing unspeakable horrors and those that are bullied to the point of taking their own lives. And mankind pretends not to see what really goes on, does he even care? Tom

"This one is for those who continue to love ferociously," aren't these the ones that survive and surpass the others, I think they are, your poetry speaks volumes of strength and perseverance. Always so beautiful to read and ingest, thank you for sharing Silent One. ps, the music haunts my soul.

Oh my, What a poem, giving voice to those who have no voice, the underclass that it's all too convenient to forget even exist. I have read the earlier comments - and there are some brilliant ones, I can't add anything that hasn't already been said on this thread. A terrific write Silent One... If this doesn't get poem of the week I don't know what will. Felicitations - Bill
