Would they listen?

I feel like I’m drowning

In a sea of people,

Whose thoughts and ideas

Overpower mine.


I’m just one person

With thoughts and ideas that seem far too alien, too simplistic.

Thoughts and ideas that

pale in comparison to the

apparent grandeur of others.


I shift my train of thoughts to theirs,

All the while looking back and wondering if

I should have taken the other track.


I’m questioning my own identity and beliefs,

My thoughts, ideas, dreams, hopes, and ambitions.

Am I wrong for thinking different

When so many others think the same?


I’m just a single entity

In a sea of so many.

I wonder

If I spoke up, would they hear me?

Would they listen?
