Hear Me Now

Hear Me Now

Hear me now, I’ll not be silent or still…
lonely or left alone.
Down a long road, so many years ago…
fortune threw me a megaphone.
Hear me now, your burden is mine…
but I’ll not cry for it on my own.
Lights turned low, but I’m louder still…
darkness won’t shelter my sound.
Up the highest peak, feet swept in sand…
fingers pulling the clouds.
Lights turned low, the curtains are closed…
I’ll not scream but I’ll say it out loud.
Hear me now, I’ll take part of the stage…
it was always yours and mine.
Lights turned up, but I’ll not turn away…
I’ll not turn away from me this time.
Across the lines, eighty-sixing what’s done…
but not on a dime.
Lights turned up, so bright you’ll lose your mind.
Hear me now, hear me through the storms and sun.
Hear me now, hear me through everything…
everything that makes us alike and like no one.

About the artist:

Natalie’s primary goal as an artist is to evoke feeling through her words and photographs.  Her artistic journey began long ago but it wasn’t until she entered her 30s that photography and writing became the primary outlet for her artistic expression.  She likes to share the way she sees the world with those who are interested in her perspective.  She is inspired by light, shadows, contrast, shapes, lines, colors, words, nature, adventure, music, and of course, the people, and animals she loves!   She has recently been experimenting with self-portraiture and finding additional outlets for her art.  While experimenting in different directions and following her passions as they arise, she is laying the groundwork for the future paths of her artistic journey.  Her work has been published by Lensbaby, Beyond the Wanderlust, and she is an artist at Offset.com.
