The swallows will always sing around the smoke stacks

The silence I have lived in
The people I have seen
To all others, I am none
Sitting on the sidelines
Silent all these years

Hearing the pointless chatter
Of all the pointless people
The never ending gossip
escaping all their lips
Watching the fakers walk by
The things they say
Changing every day
About one person to another
Silent all these years

The point of being silent
Is that I have nothing to speak aloud
‘Cause the people that surround me
Don't care about the important things
A nobody has to say
Silent all these years

This poem is dedicated to all people who believe that nobody cares what they have to say,but in hindsight, they just haven't met the right person willing to listen.

Dealing with backstabbers, there was one thing I learned. They're only powerful when you've got your back turned.
You've got enemies? Good. That means you actually stood up for something in your life.

No one really cares what I have to say except for you, Molly.  Olivia and Victoria might, but Nora doesn't even believe me that Summer bullies me, even though it happens right in front of her- the worst thing though, is that they're best friends, and Nora ALWAYS tells me about the vacations they go on and the things they do together.  I wish she could open her eyes and listen to what I have to say, but she doesn't want to.  No one does.
