When you can feel, what no one will say

You look in their eyes and they just look away

The negative vibes come filtering through

How can you resolve things, what do you do?


So often you’re scared to say what you feel

The truth often hidden, you don’t face what’s real

Yet truth good or bad, if spoken with feeling

Cuts out the pain caused when lies they’re concealing


If only all humans could speak from within

Eliminate small talk and with it much sin

Truth hidden will fester, and nobody gains

Speak what you feel; you’ll be free from the chains


Chains of restriction on what one should say

Political correctness just gets in the way

Wise men of old spoke with true open mind

And all those who listened, gained something you’ll find


So often in this life you’re taught not to say

But things on your mind just don’t go away

Why can’t you voice them, without feeling fear?

Or could you be saying what they don’t want to hear


If it’s bottled inside the thought you can’t free

So it sits in your head and it won’t let you be

And the only way out is if spoken in word

Once said, you can deal with what everyone heard..


It’s the hearing which opens your eyes to the feeling

Only then can you think of the process of healing

So never hold back that which plays in your head

Understanding comes only from words which are said!!

Didn’t get the job!

“I have to say” he said to me

“I was really impressed when I saw your CV”

“So compact, condensed, precise”

“And all on one page, that’s very nice”


I suddenly felt myself glowing with pride

He likes my CV I felt happy inside

I couldn’t hold back and I started to smile

Hadn’t had a compliment like that in a while


He likes my CV well now that’s a great start

The interview continued and I played my part

I smiled and I nodded learning forward in my chair

Keeping eye contact but careful not to stare


I uncrossed my legs and I tilted my head

Feigning great interest in all that he said

The interview techniques I researched yesterday

Spoke of body language and what it can say


We talked and we talked and the time seemed to fly

Before I realized we were saying goodbye

I shook his hand gently and again forced a smile

I told him I hoped that we’d meet in a while


The days they did pass and my phone did not ring

I checked out my emails but there wasn’t a thing

How long should one leave it and can I ask why?

I felt so dejected I just wanted to cry…
