Silhouettes –

the dark shape and outline of someone or something visible in restricted light against a brighter background.

It’s not just a dictionary meaning. It represents the underground presence, hushed voices, crushed identities that lie beneath a story. They are the ones who created the outline, but disappeared either voluntarily or were compelled to do so.

The light that shines on stories are edited highlights to convey a particular message or glorify a section of truth.

I stop on seeing words etched in sand, TRUTH SHALL PREVAIL.

A strong wave washes it away. The sun is setting on the horizon.
