Overheard

If I lower my whisper you’ll hear
so much more power behind my voice though it’s
just words, just words
just words.

Maybe if you slow down
I’ll catch up with your wind and then
fall through, fall through
fall through.

If I stand up straight I think
time will leave me alone and forgotten but I’m
overheard, overheard
overheard.

Maybe what I mean is
they hear us better when we speak softly, we have
power, power
power.

If I find a space carved out
for me in these tiny cities I can be my own
savior, savior
savior.

Maybe if I love my life
the world will see so much spark in my eyes I’ll be
stronger, stronger
stronger.
