Hello?

 

Hello! She said

Her smile intact

The world

A beautiful place.

No one answered

They turned away

Darkness

All around.

Hello! She said

A hopeful grin

Trying to stay

Positive.

A single child

Stopped and looked

Shy and tentative

He was.

Hello. She said

Her smile had dimmed

Wistful and

Subdued.

Hello? He asked

Unsure, afraid

Was anyone there

To hear.

Hello! She laughed

All was well

A single light

Broke forth.

Hello!! She shouted

The world to hear

A single voice

Did conquer!

    So…if I just say ‘hello’ it will conquer my fear, break the ice of my solitude and free me from my exile πŸ˜€
    Great poem Pam, a journey all in itself…now if I can just get someone to say it back too πŸ˜€
