Why humans speak

We talk

To murder sense,

To needlessly get tensed

To silence a child’s first cry

To support an already spoken lie,

To avoid a fight ,

To get into another tussle that involves might.

To drown a prostitute’s screams,

To break a free nation’s dreams.


We often speak too,

In just the right amount,

When your voice is the music

To someone else’s ears,

“You are beautiful.”

“You’ll be alright.”


“Listen to the silence.”
We often speak,

To appreciate the beauty

Of silence

When we stop speaking.

And somewhere the gods smile,

Seeing the last ingredient

Coming out of our Pandora’s box.
