This is what silence sounds like

This is what silence sounds like

A silence of six minutes and twenty seconds

A silence that pours across a million faces

A silence that washes a million faces with tears

A silence that cascades across the hard-hearted land

A silence that spills from wounds and hearts

A silence that washes away the last of the argument

A silence that pours forth like justice

A silence that sounds like courage

A silence that sounds like

Change.
