Have You Ever - Poem by Della Perry

Have you ever shouted but no-one listened?
Have you ever screamed but no-one heard?
Have you ever yelled but no-one heeded?
Have you ever balled but no-one paid attention?
Have you ever bellowed but no-one observed?
Have you ever called out but no-one noticed?
Have you ever cried but no-one perceived?
Have you ever hollered but no-one minded?
Have you ever ranted but no-one bothered?
I have. Have you?

There's no point talking loudly or putting across my point of view,
You see it is worthless to you
You don't listen to the words anyway even if they ring true,
So, why bother talking, I'll keep my knowledge to myself
Maybe just share it with a few!
