Few people notice you in the way
they fail to see the storm cloud
that creates the lightning.
Fewer people listen
because you lose the urge to speak
in the way thunder does not sound
without a lightning flash.
So, you put your self back on and utter,
and many see you sputter, but still
do not lend an ear
because the storm cloud is too far
and though its current reaches,
its thunder does not adhere.
