Something To Say.

By Chris Kneipp

 

I have something to say

About the things I have seen

The things that I hear

And the places I've been

 

I have something to give

Contributions to make

That may heal an old wound

Or correct a mistake

 

I have something to do

If the world would permit

Yet the world will not listen

Nor even admit

 

I'm the face in the crowd

That you chose to ignore

The one disregarded

Whom you deem to abhor

 

I have something to say

That will not reach your ear

For I can tell you nothing

If you refuse to hear.

simple, but good. you know how to structure a poem! kina' a cute little rhyme, but it's still a big message. and I heartily agree too. reminds me of that haunting song by Simon and Garfunkel... "The Sound of Silence." I relate to you, sir, we feel the same frustration with how our race is (or isn't) evolving. it's a poem for every day. how it came to be, just fits with that, and what it is.

I love simplicity in lyrical poetry, that still manages to pack a punch. Great choice of words :D

I have something to say
That will not reach your ear
For I can tell you nothing
If you refuse to hear.

Amen! To these words here
This is a wonderful write here
I like the message you have provided.

Yes it's true, People only hear
what they want to hear.
Well said.
