This is my opinion. I'm sharing it and if you don't like it. Well that sucks because it represents who I am and what I feel as a human.

Can you hear me?
Or am I just speaking to hear myself talk. 
Everything I say or do,
Is ignored,
But the question is...
How come I'm so different than everyone else in the room,
That my actions and my words, 
Don't make a difference. 
You shut me down,
You don't want to hear it,
Or you just don't care enough to listen,
Well now that I have your attention,
Or is it still going in one ear and out the next?
I want to be heard,
And not talk, for only myself to hear.
I want them to stop shutting me down,
When I should shut them down.
I maybe shy, and act like nothing matters in the world,
But when I'm talking it sure enough is important,
Because I don't want to waste time,
Time that is too limited to waste. 
One day my opinion, 
Will matter,
And my opinion won't be said,
And you'll wonder if anyone knew when the truth comes out,
And I'll say it,
For ONLY myself to hear. 
I guess there's more than one question,
Are you listening?
Because I know I am.

I enjoyed this well done. My daughter's could probably relate to this. They often feel as if their age distracts from the wisdom they possess. However I often wonder if their souls are far older than my own because of the wisdom they often share. Thank you for sharing.
