Just Listen poem

Updated on June 21, 2013

Just Listen


Put an ear to the wall and listen for a whisper

Clues through the cracks of a modern day thinker

Believing there's more to this life then the life of a drifter

But I'm listening.

As the waves bring trash to the shores of our mind

Sound waves can't echo through the walls of time

So we listen and hope something gives us hope

And hope that one day hope is all we need

So please, listen to every crunch as the system takes another

Circles upon circles of bands of brothers

Takes another.

System that doesn't sleep feeds on none other then us

Walking notes in this music

Playing our own tune as time alters who views us

What mouth of the monster will abuse us

So I listen.

Because it's either that or domination

I'll rant about it because I want to save this nation

From the deff with big pockets and a taste for devastation

So lets listen.

So time doesn't pull us all out to sea

Selection of the observant who crave being free

Waves of the people, mourning, at a knee

Because it's been so long and we are all just floating

Waiting for the day salvation brings our boat in

      I'm still waiting for anarchy, but I guess I can try and help with the god fight.

      They are parts of each other. I was referring to the system, but thank you.. I didn't look at it like that. Always a pleasure on my hub JPBo756

      Wondering if you are metaphorically challenging us to deny Death, or merely "The System." Nice work.
