What Makes us Listen

There is a silence in my ear
That echoes all my inner fears
And muted whispers twist and dive
And crumple the sights for which I strive

Doubts grow wings and flutter forth
Say walk south when the sign points north
A litter of worries give birth to more
Breaking weak vows to which we swore

A fragile balance of do and do not
Blood blooming forward long after the shot
In life you step forward and never look back
Loose your direction and you veer off track

The feeling that there’s something forgotten
A heavy fog as soft as cotton
Blankets the mind and makes you forget
And idly makes a feeble threat

We give strength to their empty words
Which distract us from that we’re moving towards
A goal in mind, a promise, a swear
But those murmurs make our
certainty tear

Mute the silence in your ear
Keep your thoughts anchored here
You may still hear those sad premonitions
But no one said you had to listen
