Unheard by Thompson Emate

Thompson Emate | Jul 3rd, 2022 | poetry | No Comments


A listening ear,
Everyone’s desire,
Everyone’s wish,
It’s a busy world,
A world in the fast lane,
Few listen,
Empathy is asking for too much.

The statue’s patience,
Like the sun standing in a gloomy sky,
Like the stars decorating the night sky,
Objects that depict man’s
virtues and struggles,
All the sculptor’s dreams,
An embracing world,
All are man’s dreams.
