The Silent Ones

Their silence spread
like wildfire on kerosene,
barely above a whisper,
they’ll speak,
their voices pierce
the controlled air.

Here and there,
they give a peep.
Just enough sustenance
to make a beep.

The rest of their words
escape into the darkness
unheard of, suppressed
for the right moment to speak up.
