Speaking to the Void

January 1, 2018

How do you

start a conversation

that no one wants to have

about truth

and loyalty

and trust

about respect

appreciation

and gratitude

How do you

start a conversation

when no one is willing to listen

to the words

the thoughts

and feelings expressed

about wrongs

that need righting

lies that need exposing

How do you

start a conversation

that frightens people

so badly that

they cover their ears

and close their eyes

shutting their minds

to anything

and everything you have to say

How do you

start a conversation

with people who simply aren’t there

NotThere
