Who Matters?

You matter.

Your feelings matter. They can not be measured with a tape.

Your voice matters, and it is beautiful.

Your soul matters. You can never know its silent shape.

~

We matter.

We are lonely rocks in a never ending sea.

Our hearts are lost, are found, are free, are full,

we are trees torn away in storms, and washed up in the lee.

~

We are lost.

Our hopes lift up, then plunge against the rocky shore.

Our systems serve ‘The People Who Matter’, they rule.

‘The People Who Matter’ really matter. They just do not matter more.

~

Our lives, and our hopes, untended, tired and parching,

let’s find our feet and fill our hearts and hand in hand start marching.

I started writing poetry as a hobby early in 2018. I’m excited about having a Blog and hope that some readers will share in my enjoyment of the poems. I am also interested in feedback to help me develop in my writing, whether positive or critical.
