Deaf To Voices

Deaf to voices,
Other than their own ingrown...
Patronizes a tension.
And seeks imbalanced attention.

Creating confusion.
With a self inflicting wish,
That demands...
To be heard as commanded.

And disputes the commonplace of truth.
Dissecting its universal accepted meaning,
Only to appease a deafness,
That wishes truth to be of its own creation.
