So many of us want to be heard. Why should you listen to me?

Wanting to be Heard

So many of us want to be heard.

Why should you listen to me?

Maybe you shouldn’t.

Yet I hope that you will.

For my voice is my hope.

Hope to leave a mark,

on this cold world of ours.

A mark of love and compassion,

for all living things.

Sometimes I question it.

Should I even keep going?

Does anyone really care?

Or are we all just shouting over each other.

I’m as bad an offender as any,

so caught up in my own pain.

I barely get a chance to read.

I exhaust my energy writing.

Hoping for praise.

Praying it will take me somewhere.

Somewhere better than where I’ve been.

To a place where I feel like I matter.

I’d explore and write of my journeys.

But would anyone want to hear it?

Or do we all just want to be heard?
