Can You Hear Me?

Mon, 11/05/2018 - 00:34 -- T-Moor

You can see it. 

Here it is. A new place. A big place. Bigger than before. 

People passing, moving - always moving. 

But stop. 

Can you hear me? 

Are you moving too fast? Looking every other way but here?

Are your air pods turned up too loud? 

I know you can see me. 

I know you can hear me. 

Are you scared? 

Do you fear the words you hear? 

Those words? That's the truth. You're hearing the truth. 

You may think I don't matter. You may think WE don't matter. But we do. 

We matter. 

If you stop to listen, you might hear why. 

We matter because we are all you have. The future is in our hands. 

IT'S UP TO US. 

WE ARE PICKING UP YOUR MESS.

Can you hear me now?
