Sound – POEM #28 NATIONAL POETRY MONTH 2019

A sound has the power to reach many
and many can make a sound..

And you…?

You have the power to not listen
yes.. the power to not listen
but not the power to not hear…

There are different kind of words
in this world

cries, laughs, shrieks, wails, abuses
you name it there is a sound for it..

even silence can be heard today..
they say….

And you always have the power..
sorry the ‘choice’…. not the ‘power’

the choice to not listen..
Yet powerless to not hear..

So I beg you…. please listen..
please listen to what you hear
listen…

they need you to
they need you to…..
