Small Voices

Small Voices

A Poem by StormeLight

Society calls us a nobody

And takes all our power away

Trying to take the passion

From voices long held at bay

We think we make no difference

With everything we say

But why would the small

Someday become the great?

You think you have no power

You think you have no influence

Breathing every breath you take

Afraid of all the dissonance

You don't see your harmony

But I can see it clear

All the words you say have power

Small voices hear

Loud voices bark

Small voices hear

Your voice is like a ripple in a lake

with the choices you make every day

Your voice is a ripple in a lake

Breaking all the chains

Someday you will see it all

From an aerial perspective

Wondering how you felt small

When you were part of the collective

It doesn't take a million

Voices to make a difference

Just the passion of a few

Willing to go against the system

Your voice is as powerful as the truth behind it. If you have worked to achieve a modicum of respect and admiration from your circle of friends and peers you will be gifted with influence. People will trust in what you say because they know you speak with truth. It is a great responsibility that should be wielded wisely. This is a strong poem that speaks of that voice of truth. Thank you for sharing your art.

The wisdom that is listening yes? Taking much patience and much self restraint
