Rooms of Neglected Elephants

Updated on June 28, 2012

I show to all who gather.

My presence is largely missed.

I make no room in a room.

My existence can’t be missed.

I see they see, but not really see.

It’s lonely in these crowded rooms.

Clearly its obviously seen.

Detour signs my direction.

Being the sign is my direction.

Will this ever make known my attention.

Point were I stand with all correct Intention

Leavening them with means of no misdirection.

Before this room fills with points of no direction.

      So often, I am the only one who seems aware of the elephant in the room! Thank you!

      Voted up. I think "It's lonely in crowded rooms" Wow! I have felt that way too many times before. Sometimes it feels like your a spectator at your own party. Thanks!

      Voted up and awesome. Most people choose to ignore the existence of others and only emphasize their own points whether right or wrong.

      Perhaps you need to make a little noise on where you stand, so people realize you exist..well written, but surely someone is aware of your existence/presence ?
