HIDDEN VOICES (POEM)


HIDDEN VOICES

We are dead but still living
Life cannot hold us down
We are dead but can breathe
Journeys that were not completed

We are dead but can teach
Our aspirations were not thought
We are dead but can redeem
The mist of the morning that becomes hot at noon

We are dead but can win
Battles are fought in full belief
We are dead but can motivate
Lives can change their attitude

We are dead but can talk
We are the hidden voices of a man's life
We are the potentials that were never discovered and utilized
We are the kind of things that were only wished for but not attained

We are dead but cannot rise again even we live
Don't allow your goals and visions lie fallow.
