Some People Listen to Life

Some people listen to themselves
No matter what they say
Or others say
All they hear is me

Some people listen to others
They hear the crying of the hungry children
The depressed fathers trying to make ends meet
The suffering of the cancer patients

Some people listen to the birds
The ocean
The trees
The flowers
They hear music
They hear songs

Some people listen to the Past
They hear the wars
The shooting
The screaming

Some people listen to life
They hear poems


  1. Hi Temy…I love your poems. They are so simple yet profound at the same time. They really made me ponder on the every day things that I’ve been taking for granted. Thanks for reminding me how beautiful life can be! Please do continue with your writing.
