Silence

Scream into that wind,
though your voice is unheard.

Yell out into that silence,
into that vast space of life.

Speak of the ills,
of the strife.

Plead with wet eyes,
to let your voice be heard.

Add yours to all of those
righteous, talking heads.

And none are listening.

So let it be known,
you speak not for yourself.

Keep trying, keep sighing,
it’s not for yourself.

No matter that no one listens,
that no one reads.

It is on your heart that you tried,
that you said your mind.

You cannot quit,
the possibility is too great.

That there’s always one,
just one, who is listening.

And that has to be enough.
