~MAN~~

No one really listened...
To the man who said nothing,
Even though his screams echo,
His words never left his lips.

His eyes spoke of hard times,
A body that proved silenced words true,
Tears that fell or the unspoken,
Fists that clenched at the world.

He may have reached..
Yet he fell and hit hard,
Hiding the shame in silence,
Forgetting what meant most.
People spoke of him,

Not seing what he said,
The arrogant getting what they want,
Hearing and seing with convienience,
Rather than an open heart.

A man forced to suffer,
He called out in vein,
But no one really watched nor listened,
To the man who said nothing.

Welcome to the family! Your poem was thought provoking (check for misspelled words though). I look forward to reading more from you.
