I am sitting in a room
With people all around me

People talking, People laughing
People yelling, People screaming

I listen...
Nothing
I talk...
Nothing
I slap someone across the face...
Nothing

What is wrong with them?
Can't they hear me?

People pointing, People staring
People singing, People dancing

What is wrong with me?
Why can't I hear them?
Why can't they hear me?

Hello?

Someone?


Anyone?

I talk,
I scream,

and then I yell!

Nothing!

The author's comments:
What inspired this piece? Well it was the saying "Children should be seen not heard" It is also kind of based on dreams were you are trying to tell someone something well they don't hear you.
