I feel as a puppet
With some master pulling strings
I have no choice in the matter
He makes me do everything

My voice is small
And one of many countless
There is no knowledge
Of how I can surmount this

My actions are wasted
Tugging at the cords that bind
Dancing to anotherís tune
Of music that should be mine

If I shout aloud in a forest
Will I be heard?
Speaking out in this way,
Am I even being heard?

Sometimes we do feel like that, I'm sure we all have from time to time. Great poem, JML!
Yes, you are being heard!

Hey Jerry...just keep shouting, someone will hear you sooner or later. Your words ring loud and clear though

Such questioning I think we've all experienced, at some point. You've clearly expressed the frustration of feeling a loss of control. (and you're being heard, doc)

we feel your words, not hear them...a true poets gift...
another poem of perfection...
stalking you always...
your jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...
