Unheard


Some mindless souls roaming needlessly
Minds wrapped in oblivion of the passing audiences
People like robots in passing crowds
Nobody really notices as I look around
Voices echo in the hollow streets as empty is all it keeps
Agony vs happiness encircles me
For power over prejudice dies to sleep
Melodies from footsteps staggering by
Teachers and artists like butterflies
Is anyone really watching
Do they really see
All there is in this world surrounding all that's free
Waiting on one moment waiting on a word
Broken wings of angels or wreaking havoc well that's absurd
 alot can go unheard

  1. Distance lies within these words...the haunting, dissonant voice of the individual, simply longing. I think we all can empathize with this now and again--for the loneliness can pry at us all.

  3. There is so much that's dismissed or ignored in our lives. Fortunately, there are poets like you to write about what it is that they are missing.
