Silence We Do Not Know

When the band doesn’t play

We cannot cheer

We fall silent.

 

If the sun fades to black

We cannot see

We fall silent.

 

At the ringing of the bell

We cannot hear

We fall silent.

 

Yet with this much noise

We cannot hear, we cannot see, we can give no praise

We cannot be silent.

 

And our inability makes us dumb

It makes us deaf, it makes us ungrateful

And we are still not silent.

 

All our noise keeps us from

The voices of our hearts, and more importantly,

The voice of God.
