    Soap Box Opera


    I stand
    I stand alone
    I stand for purposes
    Proposed by unknowns
    I’ve come to know my purpose
    ….Standing….

    I stand
    While others sit
    Listening to my stance
    For a chance to stand
    For their own known stance
    Until they are on they’re own
    …Sitting…

    I sit
    While others crawl
    Wondering should I crawl?
    Or should I just lie down?
    Tasting the ground they crawl in
    To plan my stance, within them I’m...
    …Crawling…

    I crawl
    So others can sit
    They sit understanding to listen
    For their own chance to stand
    Standing demands me to crawl
    But I can’t stand to crawl
    Do I stand to tall while I’m…
    …Falling…

    I Fall
    Atop a soap box
    Crawling inside your thoughts
    Sitting within your hearts
    Standing atop your deepest parts
    To listen to your thoughts about…
    ...Speaking…

    I speak
    I spoke to you
    Can you speak or move?
    Now that speech is moving?
    I’m moved to speak to you
    Please speak when you’re spoken too
    Speak quickly before I’m removed
    Careful before you speak to soon
    …Listen…

    I listen
    To those sitting
    Seeing what its like to stand
    When they planned on crawling
    They recall seeing me standing
    Not knowing I’ll be falling
    But I’ll crawl, to them, calling
    Stand tall, and crawl to me
    …Sing…

    I sing
    Musical songs
    Songs of a keynote speaker
    Leaving your ears bleeding
    I feel music while I stand
    I heal when I sing, I sing because
    …We’re standing…

    We stand
    We stand together
    We stand to demand purpose
    Proposed by those who know
    Weather we stand, sit, or crawl
    Speak, listen, move, or none at all
    We will always stand fall within
    Stand within me as we make a stance
    ….Forever….

    I thought this was beautiful. I love how people write to pictures. Their needs to be more people writing to pictures. I love what you did, it was so original, and pure... I am really loving your work. I honestly can tell you are a real artist.

    my favorite stanza was the same as Bhitia's, I loved that stanza because it shows just how much some people want and yearn to be heard, and how fast but careful you need to speak when answering or talking to someone. i just loved it.
