Human interaction is a dying art


Put down the phone and engage is a start


Thoughts, words, memories and fears

Unspoken, ignored or repressed through the years


The chaos that is this fast paced world

Being seen but not heard is the way that most feel


“I write because nobody listens” is tagged with a spray

Down an alley, on a wall to be discovered one day


I quiet the noise in a shroud of soft white

A glimpse of the voice beneath an ethereal light


Looking for peace in an over stimulated world

Longing to be heard so we let out a yell


Posting and selfies, see? the world is ideal

Truth finally spoken…our lives become real
