Notice me

A group poem by Yashi Brown for The Campaign to Change Direction

 

VERSE 1

Notice me. My wall of ice melts easily.

~pamby1

Somehow, I can’t utter a sound; I’m muted, my anxiety profound

~tyche

The mime in the box, yeah, that’s me. But, not only am I silenced, this mime is not seen ~YouLoveMenna

A tiny radiance from a distant place, can change how I feel and the look on my face ~Pekkepop


VERSE 2

I can feel its warmth reaching places that I haven’t seen or felt in ages

~ candicej1983

I dance slowly, around this inner sun – my power is within

~ JoeStilez

But I’m spellbound from a smile, catched up by a glance, with a sudden move, from alive into trance

~Pekkepop

Is that light through my pinhole just a mirage.. or a miracle healing for self-sabotage?

~kathryn simova


VERSE 3

What cruelty has the world placed on you – with eyes so sad, and heart so meek?

~Meganambers

What’s in this moment – your personality seems changed? I can’t read your energy – all seems rearranged

~smiley lizard

Then tears come down, as rivers of emotions flow.. And reveal the need to heal a broken soul

~adarra

Take my calloused hand, it’s fought the fight you are fighting. I have won my own battle and have a passion still worth lighting

~Wally Peters

I’m not here to judge you, or get in your way..I’m just here to be with you, if you want me to stay

~G.T.Edwards


VERSE 4

Each of us embodies light, two spirits joined burn twice as bright

~G.T.Edwards

I see your pain that you think is unseen, your life is worth much more than you think

~Victoria N.

Moving forward…now that I have spoken my initiative, what direction is that??

~journeyde

When I can be alone and not lonely; I’ll know…I am finally free

~tyche


VERSE 5

Free to be me, free to exist..the urge to die, I can resist!

~sincerescribe

Oh, for the courage, to reach across the room, to be like a flower – ready to bloom

~tyche

Embrace who you are, take nothing for granted – your peace will grow, from those seeds that are planted ~G.T.Edwards

But if I stumble, promise you’ll employ patience and help me to heal once again

~Aquatopia

Freedom, healing, self-love…Wow! How do we remember? Like storing pictures in the cloud, it comes back when you surrender

~MaidenAt


VERSE 6

The heaviness of your heart keeps you stuck on the ground…your words fall flat in this world full of sound

~Gunslinger1

Some are silenced by judgment…others silenced by pain

~cloudymemories

It’s easy to say.. “there’s nothing I can do”. It’s easy to say..“I’ll call later”. It’s easy to just walk away.

~pamby1

Now we walk together; no longer dwelling in misery, not a “you” or an”I” , but a “us” and a “we”, for every stride I assisted you with I unknowingly helped me.

~ Sunshine


Yes, you noticed me. Things that repelled or scared others, you recognized as pain.

~pamby1

The sweetest expression, of Love one can give, is to give of themselves, so another might live

~GT Edwards
