People will listen, 
not everyone will hear.
It's just a little noise,
no one will pay attention.
The words i speak, are few and quiet,
Though they are not very wise, 
Please keep them near?
Just close enough to hear?

    Boy, "few and quiet" ounds like me. I bet there are a lot of poets and writers that way because people that talk a lot don't have time to write. I like the poem and how you worded it. I do have one suggestion though. Because of the way you start out, it would make more sense to have some variation of "hear" in the last line.

    Ok I kind of changed it up, do you think that is better?

    The true colors of humanity will hear you without you needing to say a word. I, too, question who is really listening at times. Nicely put here!
