Poem: Voices

Voices” by Angela K. Mack © 1/6/09

I listen to VOICES for a living….

mainly, voices of inexperience

wanting to be heard yet lacking the depth

THAT COMES WITH LIVING.

I listen to VOICES for a living…..

needs that want to be met

that chase me down and sap me

IF I AM NOT TOO CAREFUL.

I listen to VOICES for a living…..

the arguing voice, the whining voice,

the voice of reason and seduction

AND I AM OVERWHELMED.

But occasionally, very rare, I get to SPEAK.

My passions and my soul are GIVEN CONSIDERATION.

My words are dissected and analyzed by CURIOUS MINDS.

And once a year, I get to sing and be heard.

I get to write and be understood.

It is a great thing when one is listened to.

It is a great thing when expression is found by acceptance.

It is a great thing when the suppressed emotions are released in resounding strengths.

This is why I listen to VOICES for a living.

Do unto others as you want them to do for you……..”
