Longing To Be Heard

Poetry By: SGBanks

First of all I want to thank my friend Erika Danielle for inspiring this poem. This poem is for all the people who are shy or just want to be heard. As much as they want to speak out, they sometimes cant find the strength to do so. Well I wrote this poem to encourage these people to take a stand and let their voices be heard. Hope you enjoy :)

This is for words left unsaid

The thoughts I wanted to say out loud but always kept in my head

I been silent for too long and it's time for you to listen

Yea you heard the chorus but you didn't hear the one voice that was missing

Yea it was mine

Quiet for far to long, now im ready to shine

No more being afraid of others opinions

Last I cheked this my life that I'm living

Tired of being the shadow looked down on

I want to be the giant thats always looked upon

No longer do I want to be the caterpillar trapped in its chrysallis

I'm going to break out my cocoon, be free, and nothing less

Can I really do this? As I stand atop of this building

I been waiting for this so long so why push away this feeling

I want to change, I want to be more

Well here I go: I'M ON TOP OF THE WORLD!!! HERE ME ROAR!!!
