Voices Of The Ignorant

Voices Of The Ignorant

A Poem by Elizabeth Fiske
"

A poem for the Artist,Poets, and Believers left in this world...

"
Is there a lesson to learn
When surrounded by ignorance?
A voice that will yell
When solitary? 
No reason
In society?

Everyday,
Voices of the ignorant
Test my nerves.

Everyday,
Tears of the broken
Lead me to write
Words never spoken.




Little children,
Destroyed before 
Understanding what
"Faith"
Means...

Hearts,
Spill their blood
Before they
Know what
"Love" 
Means...

Dreams,
Crushed before
Understanding what
"Perseverance" 
Means...

Is there any hope
For a dreamer
Of the unspeakable
To cope
In a life of the
Realistic?

It seems they rule our days:
People without courage,
People without strength,
People who have never died
Inside.

Where is modesty?
Where is friendship?
Where is love?
Where are the dreamers?
Where are the 
Weird,
Creative,
Beautiful,
Majestic
Artists, Poets, Believers?

Every moon needs its stars,
Every heart needs its passion,
Every lover needs another...
How would they live without their pair?
A starless night?!
A passionless heart?!
A lonely lover?!

Society is a hypocrite: 
Rejecting the insane
When they're truly insane
Themselves!

Everyone who says,
"I can get through this!"
"I don't care what they say! I'm beautiful anyway!"
"Your insults don't hurt me!"
"My dreams are tomorrow's reality!"
Are the sane ones.

I think people are quick to judge
When they've judge themselves to death...
They're a hallow shell
Full of their battered heart
That they broke to the point
Of no return.

So,
My heart may be scarred,
Broken,
But at least
I'm not insane.

We will always have ignorance in our world and through them we will know wisdom of how not to treat others. We are all connected on this planet rather we chose to see it or not but it is easier for us to pretend we are totally independent. Great write

Ignorance will forever be among us, sadly. Anyway, this is very heartfelt and has made me think of how the things we say and do effect others. Very well done.

I will store this with my own book of writings because that's how much of an impact it has made. I want to read it over and over again as a reminder to keep holding on because someone understands my struggle.
