I Just Want Be Heard - Poem by justice bernard brown

Watch me,
Give me some attention,
Don't you care for your child,
Who shed streams of blood,
See me,
Look in my section,
Please mother,
Listen to my every word,
I just wanna be heard,

Sitting there through the holiday evening,
Watching everyone smile for no apparent reason,
No one cares for the eldest child,
Who's falling into a deep abyss,
About to commit treason,
Get out of daydream land and hear me out,
Forgetting my name,
And getting kicked out,
I just wanna be heard,

I looked into the water,
I'm bout to disappear,
My mind is in doubt,
Cause there was no water during this drought,
I was quickly picked up,
By a man and woman whose face was a flood,
I was taken away to a door,
To a place where I seen the people I once adored,
Swifly case was adjourned,
Put in the dark hole,
All because you couldn't hear,
Treated your dog like a turd,
When I just wanted to be heard
