Photograph I : Tilburg, Westerpark, the Netherlands by Petra Hermans
Quiet and silent
I have been living in a family,
in which silence is the most familiar word.
I have been wondering my streets,
ever since my youth.
Children of other families have and show
other kinds of behaviour, I do not always
appreciate, and I did not.
Even though, you have been raising
youth in your way, it is not a part
in my futuristic way.
Because of my special position,
strong and weak
on the very same time,
I listened to sounds
stronger than silence.
I have seen how birds fall in the sky,
because I have my food, at a later moment.
In my team, the members are
no longer members.
The moment, as if it All appeared
to stay quiet, an angel
loved and loves her deep silence.
