A thank you poem when things get rough. Or a thoughtful moment when you see someone in trouble.

I’m not done, don’t shut me out

Don’t shut me down; I have a voice here too

 

Pass me by,

Just another voice in a crowd of screams

I know

 

But I feel it,

Can you hear it?

I feel it; simmering heart beat

Let it leave me, fade away

Stop the heart break

 

Stop! Listen,

Your heart beat, I never knew…
I see it, you’re see through like glass

 

Look at that beauty,

Kindness flowing,

Touching lives

 

Take me to the light,

Reignite my heart

Electric beating inside

Just a stranger on the tides

You’d never know till it was too late

No heart beat, evaporated away

 

But, one act…

One kindness…

Listen

 

Too beautiful, sing, that voice

That’s what I crave,

I want to be as brave as you,

I want to be as kind as you,

I want to save that voiceless heart too

 

One small change: freedom,

Listen,

I’m not done…Can’t shut me out

 

Can’t… I’m out

I’m free, look

 

Listen,

I’ve learned,

Beautiful soul,

Thank you for teaching me.
