“I write only because
There is a voice within me
That will not be still.”
-Sylvia Plath


If no one felt,
There would be no:

Tears.
Sorrow.
Happiness.
Confusion.
Fear.
Laughter.
Anger.
Wonder.
Grief.
Caring.
Jealousy.

There would be no
Souls.
Just empty containers.
To hold the souls,
If they decide to exist.


The author's comments:
Sometimes people act like robots, and it annoys me. One special person was particularly getting on my nerves at the time I was writing this. In the end the poem ended up being softer and haunting to me for some reason.

I understand your point and I've never thought of it that way. I guess I'm just a positive person. I like to look at the little bit of good in the world that we do have. Thank you for commenting! I really appreciate it! :)

My soul chooses to be hidden, but it's not because I am a robot. It is because the world I live in is harsh and cruel. So I have to hide myself from the world, this cruel and mocking world....
