Silence Unfathomable

By: Sukanya

Imperturbable tranquility all around...

Where are thy clamorous notes, O Civilization?

Where is the rattling sound?

Where is the chariot of revolution?

The striding pace of progress has suddenly been fettered

O Civilization, your waves have receded far

Exposing the naked shells of humanity

Exposing our insignificance in this vast realm...

Hush!

This is the time for introspection

To probe into our depth

And to discover light within...

The light that will illuminate all dark corridors

The light that will transcend all barriers

And welcome a new dawn.
