Poem to a chat room...

A poem...

How do u listen in a chat room where people just scream?
How do u hear when u are caught up in your own thing?
How can u walk away when someone's words have chopped off your feet?
How can u stand and get slapped, when they won't let u turn your cheek?
How does one offend when they don't even know what they said?
How does one let go, when they aren't allowed to make amends?
How can one stop crying, when one knows not where the tears are from -
When the sadness and the anger are the only feelings that come?
How can u ignore what is punching u while u stand?
How can u keep typing when your fists take over your hands?
