Listen – Almost Onomatopoeia

If you simply close your eyes

And allow yourself to hear

All the sounds that are going around;

 

Listen to the words,

Listen to the talks,

Listen to the silence

And taps of lonely walk;

 

Listen to the birds,

Listen to the streams,

Listen to the sound of forming dreams;

 

Somewhere someone grins and laughs,

Somewhere someone cries and mourns,

Listen to those crackles,

Listen to those screams;

 

Listen to the buzz of lights,

Listen to the flickering of flames,

Listen to the melody of voice,

Listen these words of advice;

 

Listen to triumphant of being free,

Listen to the roar of celebration,

Listen to the plead of compulsion,

Listen to the force of commitment;

 

 

Listen to the joy of acceptance,

Listen to the pain of rejection,

Listen to the thud of falling down,

Listen to this surreal soaring dawn;

 

Listen to the burden of defeat,

Listen to the uproar of victory,

 

Listen my friend – o thou mighty knight!

All you have to do is listen and learn.
