What is Your Sawi Song?

what is your sawi song? the song carrying the pain in your heart, until you are awash if not tears, then just memories of a great love gone astray? what strikes that wound in you? wounds that have blistered, scarred and dried up but just the beat of this song reveals still the open gaping wound hurting? what makes you leave the present enough to relive the past, a past which despite so much cursing, could not be forgotten? what song unmasks you? tearing down that armor to reveal the meek hurting soul, no stranger to weeping in dark corners? find that song and find yourself. no longer the hero but still brave. do not be afraid to face the silence.
