Soft voices

The only voices that ever deserve to be heard

are the ones that don’t say much

they stay at the back of large halls

in dark corners

the quiet ones, that retire into the night

without love or longing

but only their shame

at having failed once again

to speak up

to say anything worthwhile

they pick their words carefully

like valuable currency, their words

mean something

and when they are finally heard

the earth quivers beneath our feet.
