SILENCE (a film by Martin Scorsese)

Where is the place for a weak man
in this world,
Kichijiro, the apostate, was asking
The reply was already emerging
Inside a hut beaten
Sometimes by light and sometimes by darkness
As others were talking about the absence of God
Or was it about themselves who stopped echoing
On the shores of a frozen domain
Weakness steals the place of strength
Just whispering, forgive me...
There is no silence
No other silence
But the sheer silence of God
Singing all the answers
In our hearts
