Our Unhearing World

 
To wake up to the Morning chorus,

From sounds of Robin redbreast chirping, Crows cawing

To the Lark in the meadows,

 Cows lowing, coming gently across the breeze

Sounds for all to enjoy,

But, not for all, is to be

People who are Deaf, or Hard of Hearing

Miss out on what others hear

Their's, a world of Silence

Unbroken from Morn tonite

Some, hear but half of what is spoken,

Always, the wrong half

There is the world of Tinnitus. an endless Buzzzz, 

Or a Train coming down the track, or Jet Fighter taking of

The sounds so strong can make you wish you had never been born

and will be with us to the end of our days

Meniere's, where you view the world on the flat of your back, if you are lucky to be at home

If not, so unsteady, some folk think you are drunk,  

Deaf/Blind, Whom all they have is the touch

Their rightful place,  a pedestal, where we salute, a people apart

Then in the Mix, comes Hyperacusis, 

When one syllable of one word that you hear

Sounds like a clap of Thunder, on your roof, so near

As evening turns tonite

And the struggle for sleep resumes, 

Then comes the break of dawn 

And the Chorus so many of us do not hear

And never will

Thank you for your reply. Those are my own thoughts and experiences of Meniere's, Tinnitus, Hearing Loss, and
Hyperacusis. I'm in an unfortunate position of having all 4 active at the same time. That is why I mentioned DeafBlind, they are a whole lot worse of than I am
