Conscious Speaking

Samuel Malik Canty: the Word Bird. I am the author of Five Poetry Books, I understand my Purpose, and my words are my proof...

conscious-speaking

Psst!

Psst!

Do you hear that? or are you once again ignoring the things you fear but should hear?

Listen…Listen carefully, my name is conscious don’t try to block my words out…

Don’t try to change the sounds that are really coming out my mouth….

There is nothing really wrong with your ears, we both know, still at times the blank expressions that overtake your face, whenever you really need to listen, amazes even me…

That shutdown of your ear canal is self-induced and you hear only what you want to hear…

This is your conscious speaking, blocking out others is fine, blocking out me is a crime...
