Devi Nangrani

Devi Nangrani

The world of sounds surrounds me
In the whirlpool of roaring waves
The external noises clash
With the internal sound of silence
Unheard by these ears.
Yet the melody is on and on
The ringing of bells
The drums of destiny
Beat in rhythm with the heartbeat.
And ceaselessly they keep ringing
To awaken me from the slumber

To enjoy the ecstasy
of the uncaptured moments
That pass by me
In my lifetime
Of which I am ignorant
For I am deaf, as I hear not
The sounds of silence.
