    STILL SILENCE

    (Speak Lord, your servant hearest)

    I’m under this cloak of dreary darkness,

    Locked with my secret tabernacle,
    dipping this felt tipped quill pen in ​
    blood red ,ink

    Spitten upon this parchment,
    Hiding all my fears, tears, insecurities,
    Between every syllable, couplet, quatrain, and verse,
    Reminiscent of the early monks,
    In the abbeys carving tablets,
    Scripting the forbidden like lazers searing steel,
    To convey cryptic messages so unreal
    It’s through this method I beseech thee,​
    LORD, Break this ear splitting silence

    AND​
    SPEAK!!

    A super lunary plain of enlightenment is what I wish to achieve,

    Reach reincarnation through tape upon tape, scroll upon scroll of incantation
    I’m begging to understand this spiritual realm.
    I’m studying to show myself approved.
    The truth is what I seek,
    So I want you to ​
    SPEAK!
    Through me, thy spirit LORD I readily will receive,

    Just shatter this placid silence,
    Exorcise my mind from my body,​
    SPEAK LORD! SPEAK!

    All the sudden an essence takes ova my body,

    Vision gets blurry,
    Muscles twitching intensely,
    My hand starts shuttering as I start stuttering,
    Babbling like those people in the tower,
    Except mine in the form of philosophized lyrics,
    Mountains quake, Earth violently shakes,
    Deafining Silence evaporates
    Voice rings clear as a bell,​

    “I made you in my own image,

    Therefore you are a GOD in your own right,
    So I command you I command you to write,
    GO! Take the word back,
    You possess the power in speech,
    To turn this upside down world upright,
    Opposition will be great cuz they’ve become complacent,
    But hold on to the quill sword FORGE FORWARD!
    Destruction is only as inevitable as the corrections they choose not to see​

    Artemis, Shiva, Laotzu, A-Mun-ra,
    The universe collectively can’t encompass the bounds of a​
    Professional Oratory Educational Technican’s Aura

    Now SPEAK!
    Join the ranks of fellow scryb’s past and present,
    Carry on the tradition of utilizing the third eye,
    You are apart of a legion of soldiers that are armed with essentials pen, pad, open-mind, and mic,
    On a mission to save the world from itself" ​


    Free Thought,

    Liberated Tongues,
    Illuminated Begins,
    Brave Souls,
    Were phrases that were hollered at me!!​


    Hail Fell,
    Volcanoes Erupted,
    Lighting Flashed,
    Thunder Rolled,
    Every Catastrophic Cataclysm
    that was possible,
    was taking place,
    BUT YET,
    I was physically alone,
    In a,STILL SILENCE

    In silence there is much we can hear, if we so allow ourselves to listen. Eloquently scribed.

    wow this is a powerful here poet

    i've always felt that the true power comes from the silence

    and follow the path of righteousness

    peace
