What is, is
is there regardless
if I'm here
it is 
just because
and needs not
my affirmation
or even
my word
that attempts
to make real
in my mind
what is already
yet I must admit
the real inside
my head
is but a construct
only to me
in order that
I may try
to convince you
that it is
as real
as that
which is.

Voice and voiceless

With voice
that is heard
that has paused many
to dwell upon each word
understanding thoughts
your thoughts
sometimes dismiss
those without voice
with but wind  
and rock
and river murmur
constant companions
the voiceless
for words.
