Can you hear me?

Can you hear me

I know I am quiet

I can be overlooked

Not one to shout above the noise

Too afraid to speak my mind

I find a place where I can shine

Words on the paper

Free like birds

No longer trapped inside


Can you hear me

I may look unimportant

Pushed aside and ignored

But not anymore

Poetry is a door

When it opens and I look inside

I find a world where I can speak my mind


Can you hear me

I do not have to ask

The words on the paper say it all
