Words are so powerful, beautiful 
But sometimes meaningless 
I speak, and no one hears 
Or cares, it doesn’t matter which 
I’m afraid to speak, so I watch 
Listen to the words of others 
Which one’s matter 
Which one’s don't
And what I see terrifies me 
The selective ignorance 
That leaves so many people 
Alone as others turn away 
But there are others 
who listen too 
In awe of the terrible power 
And beauty of words 
So, I’ll wait and watch 
And hope one day 
Someone will hear my own words 
and find them beautiful
