Through Passion, i gain strength


The Silent Night,
Skies sinking –
Stars weeping
Pain and suffering just seeping

There's deep sleeping
Even with bombs dropping
Guns ringing
With the dying man's singing

All around there's screaming
The screams, a thunderous applause
In the senate halls
It's reverberating off the walls

There's still silence
In the world alone
Never to go home
Deaf when lone

The Silent Night
Moon shining
Stars sighing
Children crying

Eyes now dull
This dark space has taken its toll
Never to reach the goal
As the explosions roll

Lying here dying
No crying
Even with bombs dropping
Guns ringing

There's only one thing

The Silent Night

i do like this a lot.  i think the rhyming could have been done better, to make it more powerful.  the way it is, it's hard to reach the depth that this poem goes.

I like it, but I sort of think the rhyming killed it.

I would say this is right there really is no such thing as a silent night.
