THE LOUD WHISPERS…

My dear friends, raise your sagging spirits, think you never fell,

Coz that’s what can save you from your death knell.

Believe me friends, it’s the loud whispers that may surround you someday.

It’s not a dream, you will learn as you make your way.

They are knives put on your edge but know

that they do not let you fall off that edge;

You drag your mortal self through this path and long to put an end to all the rage;

You wish to stop all these whispers that tear your entrails like beast’s claws;

But Wait, my friend, always know that only when you finish your trek on this awful path the loud whispers turn to loud applause.

It seems a dream but perhaps you never understood that all these whispers were just praises that were under cover all the while

You made them undergo a metamorphosis and now it’s your time

  1. I have written this poem just out of the blue. It was just a sudden rush that came up while I was pondering on how so many people show sheer foolishness by ending their lives. Then I thought deeper and concluded that many a times your problem is heightened by what people around u react to it or tell u. It’s just like stabbing someone who’s already half dead. I think sometimes it becomes the toughest part to go through. We are free and independent beings and try not to care what others say. That’s great but that same person forgets this attitude during hard times. Others may not even tell everything on your face but even their whispers are clear and loud to u. I hope u will get what I felt while writing this bit of thought. I couldnot think of anything better than a poem to share it.☺

    italian traslation:
    Credimi amico, sono i forti sussurri che ci circondano ogni giorno.
    Non Γ¨ un sogno, imparerai mentre fai la tua strada.
    Sono dei coltelli messi al limite, ma lo so
    che non ti lasciano cadere da quel limite;
    Trascini il tuo sΓ© mortale attraverso questa via e desideri porre fine a tutta la rabbia;
    Desiderate fermare tutti questi sussurri che strappano le viscere come artigli di bestia;
    Ma aspetta, amico mio, sappi sempre che solo quando finisci il tuo viaggio su questo orribile sentiero i sussurri forti si trasformano in un forte applauso.
    Sembra un sogno, ma forse non hai mai capito che tutti questi sussurri erano solo elogi che erano rimasti al coperto per tutto il tempo
    Hai subito una metamorfosi e ora Γ¨ il tuo momento …

    Fascinating poem and yes, so sad to live life always on a knife edge.
    You do explain that you talk about suicide which to me is such a tragedy and
    make so many of us feel guilty for not noticing the need of the person Crying for
    help.
    Thank you also for the follow of my blog. 😊
