When the world is so loud and chaotic as it seems,

Nothing can be heard,

Not even a scream.


I’m choking and choking, gasping for air.

But as they say,

‘Life’s just not fair.’


No communication is needed in this day and age.

Pen to paper?

Silence seems to be all the rage.


But I want to be heard from worlds away,

And  so I write,

keeping silence at bay.


I want everyone to hear my powerful mind

From continent to continent,

People of all kinds.


One day, my words will ring true

I will be heard.

The question is: Will You?
