Horrified to see such betrayal says PNG Transparency head
The everlasting pain

Sad Silence


An entry in The Crocodile Prize
Kina Securities Award for Poetry

The silence lasted long
She tried to speak
But the words won’t come easily
I wondered why
The air was bleak

As the sun filtered through
I can see it in her eyes
Her painful story
It’s now history
But there were scars

Her heart
Ever so kind and gentle
Ever so loving
Ever so glowing
It’s now broken and feeble

Here is a girl
Beautifully clad
Who is so pretty
In her own quiet way
But her life, so sad
