Is Anyone Listening?

Is Anyone Listening?

The world seems against you,

while you stumble upon your path

You walk through a haze and wonder how

You will embark on your next journey

With wonder, with questions

Searching for answers, aksing questions.

Is anyone Listening?

You are quiet for long periods of time

and I can see your thoughts running through your head,

if only you could express the words you need to say.

Is anyone listening?

Life goes so very fast

from the moment you awake,

its a pace that is like a race,

But from time to time I feel you

are not with us. You are far away,

In your mind with so many thoughts going through your head

round and round – it becomes clear to me

You are wondering if



I dedicate this poem to my teenage boys. I have two going through teenage years and one that is almost there. I can see that they are working through the thoughts in their head, and sometimes having to make choices/decision. I have my fingers crossed that they make it out to the other side in one piece.

Thank you so very much for letting me get off my chest what I am experiencing every day. Writing poems has become my life line with coping with five Woody Boys, let me know if you too have teenage children, or will have soon 🙂

My thoughts and love are sent out to the children in the world – especially to those that are finding their way in life.


Lisa Wood.
