To be believed

The staring face looked back with a curled lip
Young and old and a million miles
From the girl who played along
The silent scream
Became a growl
A snarl
A vicious howl
The anger weighted
A black hole
All consuming
Sucking in the oxygen
The life taking over
The need to be heard
To be understood
That basic need
Visceral
Animal
A human requirement
Since we smeared our thoughts
Onto cave walls in mud
And to be ignored?
It stunts
Regression
Stepping back into the shell
Retreating back into our caves
To be heard
Listened to
Believed
Is critical
Desperate
Vital
Our existance depends upon it
To be heard and understood is to be human
To believe and support
Humane
