One Pause Changes Everything


I really love this poem by Brian Shivers. I thought I would share it with you today.

One Pause Changes Everything (A Poem)

No one cares.
one cares.

No one sees me.
one sees me.

No one hears me.
one hears me.

No one accepts me.
one accepts me.

No one loves me.
one loves me.
