The Harvest by Merci L McKinley

They Say 
By Merci L. McKinley 

They say this and that, but it is muffled
I continue to seek the need to speak
Their words are not piercing it is mumbled
Yet what I say, encourages others to seek

They say plenty of things that is not making sense
Trying to be loud and seen but still not heard
Speaking meaningless things in certain pretense
Little do they know what they say is most certainly absurd

They say this and that but it’s worth a penny with a hole in it
I continue to seek the need to speak
Their words slowly fading for it is pure nonsense
Yet what I say continues to nourish the weak. (c)
