SILENCE OF JACK NICHOLSON

 

Do you think I am silent
Look at me.
Am I?
My eyes do the talking.
Deep talk.
I am indeed not meditating!
Am I not
meditating?
Do you really
know what meditation is?

Okay.
forget the eyes,
if you can’t see deep.
What does my face say?
Read my lips.
My lips are sealed.
My nostrils breathe.
My hair are awesome
so is my skin.

What do you see?
Wrinkles.
No they are marks of my acts.
Next.

What do you see?
Do you see me?
Yes?
No?

Whatever,
please see more.

What do you see?
Anger!
Joy!
Peace!
Rage!
Silence!
No!
Yes!
What!
Silence!
Do you see silence?
Do you hear silence?
No?
What do you see?
What do you hear?
Do you hear a roar?
Yes!
It’s the roar of a lion
and it’s silent.
Be not afraid.
Listen.
Each cell of my body
pulls each cell on my face.
Listen to this roar carefully.
It’s silent.
