Silence.
It is the worst
The sound
of nothing
Silence is death

Silence.
When a baby is born
you want to hear something
What you hear is
crying
If you hear nothing but silence
it could mean death

Silence.
After a gunshot,
for a while you hear nothing
then sirens
It is too late
Death has placed it’s mark on a lonely victim

Silence.
After a fall
What do you hear?
Nothing
Nothing but silence
Nothing but death
It took it’s toll

Silence
When a defibrillator is turned off
Do you hear anything?
Silence.
Do you hear anything?
Death.

Silence.
It is the worst
The sound
of nothing
Silence is
Death.
Death
is silence
