Message to Readers

I literally finished this just now. I was feeling kind of down and helpless, so I wrote this poem for anyone who might feel the same way. Never give up, you are not naive for believing in change for a better world.

A Few Shouts Over a Million Whispers

You are surrounded,
People on all sides of you,
They whisper sayings:

"It doesn't affect me."
"Why do you care so much?"
"No, I'm right.  You're wrong."
"Yeah, right.  Like you're totally gonna change the world.  Keep dreaming, kid."

You cover your ears,
Wishing to drown them all out,
You just want to shout.

"What do we want?"

Did someone just shout?
You wait to hear it again.
Silence, not a word.

"I said, what do we want?"

You are not alone,
You long to reach out to them.
In response, you yell:

"Change!"

"When do we want it?"

Another voice, wow.
Others believe what you do.
Maybe you're not dumb.

"Now!"

Another recruit,
You are now more confident.
Boldly you yell out:

"Together we stand strong!"

Only a few shouts,
But they overpower a
Million whispers.
