the silence of change

Friday, December 30, 2016


sometimes i feel like
i don't even exist
like i've been erased
from reality
i open my mouth
but my words are lost to the wind
before anyone
can hold onto them
what's the point
in trying to change the world
if no one
can even hear you
i walk alone
and i see the faces of 
so many
broken people
with no voice to change their lives
i freeze
and i smile
what a silly 
useless thing to do
but
they smile back
and i realize
maybe i don't always need a voice
to make a difference
