a general complaint

You can't stop hearing it

Leave me in peace
from all the noise and hubbub
of this worldly life of nonsense
giving only pain to ears and brains
for all its stress and horrible exertion
all for nothing, making nothing but a nuisance.
Where has all the quietness been banished
with all natural and healthy life
that always was relaxed?
We'll nevermore see that again
as long as civilization is transformed
from something thoroughly creative
to a world of noise pollution
brainwashing humanity
away from everything
that once was good for both humanity and nature.
Ears can not be stopped,
and since the closing of your eyes
can't hide away the noise
of brawls from loudspeakers and microphones
wherever you get lost in civilization,
it simply has to be most radically remedied,
or civilization and humanity will perish,
drowning in the brainwash stress of noise
that is the opposite to charitable music.

Yes, I wonder what silence sounds like?
Suffering as I have for the past 15 years from tinnitus, I am actually glad for the hubbub that exists around us these days ;-)

Lovely poem, though. You write beautifully.

Yes, the finest music you find in silence.

I agree with the white dog. Too much is bad for the soul!
