Black Poetry : Thousands of ears. No one heard

Three thousand listeners.
No one heard what I said.
It's like swirling murder.
Only in my head.

I just need one out
of the many to hear my voice.
Listen to me and understand.
I'm only human.

I'm just a man.

Flesh and bone just like the rest.
Carrying the burden on my chest.
I didn't create the turmoil and stress
I have my own I made.
My burden and load to bear.

So if I seem selfish.

It's false.

I need to tend to my health,
find some time for myself.

So I'm first. Didn't you know
I have placed you ahead.
Of my own.
In the past.
No help am I given.
Now please give me some space.
I need some me time.

To work on my own survival.
I'm not upset cause you
seem to trash my dreams
each time I bring them to the table.
But this madness can't go on.

It's rose colored thorns.

Making me bleed.

You say you want this
and you say you need that.

But what do I need it's never addressed.

I'll tell you over and over again.
You may be my lover,
but now I need a friend.
Some one to listen and
help me work out.

The stop sign I find in my life.
It doesn't matter lover
friend or acquaintance.
It doesn't matter either my wife.

Freedom comes in shades of black and white.
The grays and black. It's fleeting around me
all the time. I reach up, and grab what I can
of this life. I'm not trying to stand out from
the crowd. But no one hears me of the
thousands of ears.

No one hears me in this crowd.

Thanks Destee for gracing my post. No I haven't been peaking.

I've been in this lovey dovey spin for a week now.
I have never written so much before. Until I found Destee.

I was looking at your post for support. I will come thru. I really enjoy the board and all the work you put here for us... Will it be enough? I read when I first joined you were considering making it criteria... then I guess you didn't want to alienate anyone.

Well FAMILY. I'm pulling out my credit card right now. The small bit I can give. I give with the love and hope that this board never hits a dark spot. Plu's a brother been out of work for a month now. Things are OK.. gots me a small business on the side. Setting up my merchant thing. DESTEE.. this an honor for you to grace my post as I said... Thank you.

Oh Gosh HODEE ... thank you so much ... you got me over here all teary-eyed ... gosh ... wow ... thank you ... folk have been kinda slow to respond, kinda got me scared a little ... but to read your words, my heart and spirit are encouraged ... thank you ... :) ... smiling all through the tears like the big ol' emotional baby that i am !!! :) ... yes, i was going to tie some premium membership to features, but everything we've ever had, everyone has been welcome to it ... and i want it to always be that way ... we are not all blessed the same, i know there are some Sisters and Brothers that would give if they had it and are hurt that they can't ... i don't want them to not be able to take part in any features found in this community, because they aren't able to give ... things will look up and they will be able ... so ... i thought this would be the best way to do it ... all for one and one for all.

Thank You Brother HODEE ... your contribution is an obvious sacrifice, being out of work and stuff ... wow ... thank you seems to fall so short right now ...

Much Much Love My Brother.

:heart:

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
