Then there are times when we speak and we still can not be heard...at that time I suggest you shout if you have to! Poetry is life and Life is Poetry, so step outside your box, claim your victory as Random Thought has done poetically. The Stage is set...Speak Up, Speak Out...Shout if you have to! Let your voice be heard.
