The sound never rests.

It is sometimes loud and

sometimes soft,

but always there.

Everyone has heard it for

at least a moment or two.

But they easily allow it to

mix in with the other sounds.

They soon forget it ever existed.

I always hear it.

Constantly reminding me to get up

or lay down, to stay in

or go out.

I cannot ignore the sound.

It follows me to even the

most secluded closet.

But I am quite alright with this.

For one day my ears will

die, like my body,

and the sound will

go away

    Good one. I sometimes think we take our senses for granted.

    I hope the sound will continue to give you feeling of life all the time

    many have selective hearing

    half deaf

    fully or not at all

    depends on what one wants
    to hear or hearnot

    Its a good thing you fixed that line up about “your ears will die like the rest of your body and the sound will go away”. I could see your parents kicking your butt for this peom but it is a good peom. You like to talk about people and fat people disgust you. The next time you meet a fat girl with a cute face. Offer to take her to the Gym and watch her become a princess.
