RING OF SILENCE

Written & Composed by Michael Woodhead
Copyright © 1968, 2020

In the midst of this circle of humans
I sit, contemplating
This ring of silence hems me in
As if I had committed some unforgivable sin
And yet -- I have been true to my faith

I used to sit outside the men
And watch in admiration
This ring of silence knows no bars
For they easily reach the untouchable stars
And yet -- I'm not able to fathom this wraith
