Empty Conversations by Hunter Lake [poetry]

I’m done with empty conversations 

Tired of my words going to waste
My well-articulated ideas deemed meaningless
I’m done with empty conversations


I put too much thought into my feedback

For it to be shrugged off

Like I barely replied

I’m done with empty conversations

I’m sick of the “yeah okays”

The “maybe I don’t knows”

Knowing what I said went unheard

I’m done with empty conversations



I want to be heard

Wish my realizations known

Acknowledged and recognized

I want to be heard



My opinion taken to account

These words held with value

My perception respected and noted

I want to be heard



I speak from experience and practice

I choose my words carefully

With meaning, assessment, and evidence

I deserve to be heard.
