Some sounds are echoesSome are


Some sounds are echoes

Some are whispers

Some demand to be heard and possess your mind

Some just flow past you like a chill

Some sounds hurt you from the inside out and make you want to crawl out of your skin

"Your nothing"

"Your fat"

"Why are you still alive?"

"Do us all a favor and kill yourself..."

Some sounds comfort you and carry you to safety

"I love you"

"I'm here for you"

"Your beautiful"

"I miss you..."

And some sounds just crush you

"I'm sorry Jasmin but your mother isn't coming back home"

One thing they all have in common

Is that they all demand to be heard

They demand to be listened to

Its strange how this world goes

We pay just as much attention to words of hate as to words of love

People have vanished due to words of hate demanding to be heard

People have changed the world due to words of love demanding to be heard

A word can change the world if you give it time to become a sentence

A word can make it crumble within itself if you give it time to become a paragraph

The sounds of the earth

The sounds of love

The sounds of music

The sounds of hate

The sounds of pain

The sounds of you

All have one thing in common...

They want to be heard....
