Unseen and Unheard

written by: Glen McKenzie



a life of experiences
voices waiting to speak
wanting to be heard
unappreciated for their contributions
never meeting the grade
almost unworthy of expectance
visible and never seen
audible but never heard
simply because who I am
who they are
stifled by those
who don't see
don't care
don't show
unseen and unheard
the cruelest infliction of all

A +50-year-old(although very young at heart) hiker; canoe tripper; adventurer and outdoor enthusiast who enjoys craft beer.

Hiking, canoe tripping as well as other outdoor adventure activities, can be seen as a metaphor for living. Both are journey’s filled with scores of good and not so good steps. Highs and lows; successes and failures.

Over the years, have realized that spending time in the outdoors pursuing whatever type of outdoor activity you choose opens up a wonderful and life-changing array of lessons on living and ourselves if, we are willing to stop, observe and listen.

Come and join me.
