In Transit

I am only a sound.

Easy to muffle,

Easy to stifle;

Easy to ignore

when it isn’t The note quite desired.

I am only a sound,

So easily lost

When you don’t understand

Why it is That you no longer hear me.

I am only a sound,

So easy to lose

In the hustle and bustle

Of crowded rooms With briefcases and ties.

I am only a sound;

I still echo.

Through walls, along streets

And across oceans.

My sound is welcomed by crowds.

I am only a sound.

I am only

one

Single

Voice –

But I am the sound of many.
