What is a song that goes unheard,
or poem without any words?
An echoed sound
that has no end,
a profound thought,
stuck in a pen.

What is a frame without the art,
or actor with no spoken part?
A cage secured
on every side,
a simple gig,
to feed false pride.

What is a film with no debut,
biographies from outer views?
Ways to be seen
worse than aloof,
a way to read,
another’s truth.

What is a life without a twists,
or opportunity when missed?
A day relived
with no enhance,
good lessons shown,
a second chance.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy
