I see you out of the side of my eye stumbling, crying
You are ragged, drenched in sweat
Reaching for anyone
I saw you running in the shadows, hiding
Why are you hiding?
Don’t be afraid
They walk past you
They step on you
They step over you
The welts on your skin, the agony on your face, your bones sagging deep in your leather-worn skin
They almost notice you
They shake the buzz out of their ears
They keep moving
I HEAR YOU!
**I wrote this poem when thinking of the many people who are seen to be invisible in this world! The mentally disabled, the homeless, the incarcerated, the abused, and discriminated, and the list goes on…Will you hear them? Will you be an advocate and help them? How will you change the world for the better for them? Many times they just want to be heard they just need a friend. Can you offer that much; your time!?!
