A poem about things that I often wonder.

I Wonder

I wonder what a heart sounds like when it is breaking.

Or the echo that faith makes when it shaken.


I wonder, what does love sound like when it dies.

Does it go in silence, or fill the skies with thunder when it cries.


I wonder what a mind sounds like when it screams for help because it's lost.

Or the yells from the hole in the soul that went cold, when it gets defrost.


I wonder what  love said the day that she went blind.

Did she ask for help or speak words that were bitter and unkind.


I wonder what noise comes from time as it twirls and spins.

 will it shout to the heavens  when it comes to a end.


I wonder what  peace and joy sounds like when they are found.

Or the sound of karma when it comes back around.


I wonder what does pride say when it goes before destruction.

Or the sound when it falls and hits the ground.


Whats the sound of anger and confusion if it could be heard.

Or broken dreams and promises, a  shattered imagination

and empty words.


I wonder what our spirits sound like when they breathe.

Or the sigh of relief from a mind that has been put at ease.


These are the things that a I wonder................
