Unheard, Misunderstood.

 

What’s the point in talking

when no one wants to listen?

Fingers in ears,

headphones in place,

or maybe pretending --

might as well be mute,

silent.

Nobody wants to know.

 

Or if they are heard

these words don’t make a lot of sense,

just nonsense,

garbled noise.

Comprehension of language,

no chance,

tongue tied

to translation.

 

Communication?

Not a chance,

misheard – no way;

ignored, okay.

Why bother to try?

Unheard and misunderstood.

Better to take a

vow of silence.
