I Listen

I listen to my heart,
It tells me what to do.
I listen to my mind,
It helps me with things too. 
I listen to the birds,
They chirp all of the time. 
I listen to spoken words,
Maybe I could make them 
rhyme. 
I listen to my friends talking,
I'm shy so I just stay quiet. 
I listen to people walking. 
In marches that start a riot. 
I listen to things fade,
But I get mad you see,
Cause when I want to read a 
poem I made,
No one will listen to me.
