Empty People

Written by: Caitlin Dwinnell

People might laugh,
And role their eyes,
At the sound of my voice,

But when I talk,
It isn't pointless,
It isn't empty noise,

I have feelings,
A heart,
A mind,
And thoughts I want to share,

But still you laugh and point at me,
Like there's nobody there,

I have thoughts,
I am wise,
I have a mind,
Between my eyes,

So you can laugh,
And point,
And grin,
But I'm a person,
Who lives,
