quelled emotions surrender

while rain muffles
the constant urban humming

pierced by distant sirens
moving slowly
through concrete canyons.

Pointing out
the truth.
the future.

It's all for naught.
As words spoken
remain unheard.

Ignored you start showing.
Giving all you have.

But again
all is for naught.
As results
remain unseen.

So you keep toiling
silently hidden
unknown unseen
til the end.
