Why does time fly by so fast?
So bad days can swiftly pass.
Tomorrow can bring a blast,
quickly clearing all contrast.

Why does silence sound so loud?
Lingered noises hang around.
Echoes float til they are drowned,
granting peace space to surround.

Why does loneliness feel bad?
We think alone life is sad.
Self fulfillment in our hands,
inner love can make hearts glad.

Why does truth live behind eyes?
Bodies serve as a disguise.
Infinite soul flows up high,
without flesh spirit will fly.

  1. The second and third stanzas spoke to me as a deaf guy living alone. Being alone and being lonely aren’t always the same thing, but reclusiveness can be painful. Some people handle it better than others. I’m accustomed to it by now. It’s all perspective, I suppose. Your poetry always contains kernels of wisdom. Nicely done, Grace. πŸ™‚

  2. “Why does silence sound so loud?
    Lingered noises hang around.
    Echoes float til they are drowned,
    granting peace space to surround.”

    All the answers are embedded in the ‘peace space’!

  3. Good questions and apt answers. So profound and beautiful. Well done, Grace πŸ‘ŒπŸ’–
