Neglect

FullSizeRender-5.jpg

 

My words are like feathers 

Starting strong, gliding high 

Before plummeting inevitably 

My words is the uncovered 

The undiscovered and the unheard 

Lurking behind a wall of neglect 

My voice, nothing but a backdrop 

Background music for important ones 

But not so in my head 

I’d say this pattern is not indifferent

I feel it when the wind is strong 

Which is occasional 

Soft breeze is negligible 

Not much attention it requires 

I guess that’s what I am – soft breeze 

 

Sometimes I struggle with feeling neglected or ignored and this poem was a manifestation of when that feeling had reached its peak. If you have felt like this before this is what I have to say to you – demand to be heard. You are not lesser than any other human being. No one has the right to determine your significance – only you do. Make sure you are aware of that power.

 

P.S: This post was supposed to go up two weeks ago 😦

 

Thanks for reading

Bye
