stop and listen.

why don't people just stop and listen?

to the crickets chirping on a cool night.

to the slowing breath of the one they love, laying beside them. 

listen to the air around them, for it's silence is loud enough. 

 

i just don't understand how people can go through life

without having to slow down for a moment. 

 

i can't stand the feeling of losing time, 

even though every single second, i am. 

 

every single second,

minute.

hour.

day. 

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
Our world
