My voice can’t be heard in this sea of people
Unless I’m saying something satirical
Something that makes people laugh and smile
Anything serious and it’s drowned out by other people being satirical and funny
Can you hear me?
Of course you can’t, I’m talking through a screen
You’re merrily creating a voice for me in my head
If you’re even reading this in the first place
It is nice though, I can type in a serious manner
I don’t have to be drowned out when I’m not even in this sea
I don’t have to be funny when nobody is there to laugh
I don’t have to be someone I’m not
Can you hear me now?
Am I manifesting as something relatable?
Because I know that I’m not the only one faking this laughter
I cause the laughter despite hating it, and I know there are others doing the same
I’m not alone in this sea
I just don’t have a voice to rise against it
So hi, nice to meet you
I can hear you, if you can hear me
We don’t need a voice to be heard, do we?
We just need to be the same, and we can understand each other’s feelings because they are our own
You and I are the same.
