Sonnet poemListening, 20222D

This poem discusses the questions and the answers that are at the root of me as a conscious being, noticed when I pay attention, when I listen. Ultimately it is to make the reader feel less alone. In a sonnet form, it sets up the problems of the human experience in the first half and not fully resolving but at least addressing them in the second half. At times talking directly to the reader and at others addressing questions to God, for the reader to witness. Best read at least once within yourself and once out loud, slowly.
