inner ramblings, poem

Can You Hear

Can you hear a shattering glass,
How it sounds when it broke and crashed
When it kissed the hard ground?
Can you hear a falling tall tree,
How the trunk breaks and be torn free
When the earth pulls it down?
Can you hear a crumbling wall,
How it grumbles and slowly falls
When shaken and destroyed?
‘Yes’ is the answer to all three
But not all breaking things can be
Easily recognized and seen
Can you hear a breaking heart?
Can you hear a crushing soul?
Obviously, the answer is ‘No.’
