So many people

So many people talking,
Longing to be heard and seen,;
So many people,
Hungering for their moment
Of praise and accolades,
Driven by conviction or desire to excel
To stretch themselves, 
to grab for the gold.
Not enough people listening,
Hungering for peace.
Not enough people
Driven by compassion,
Imagining themselves in others' lives,
Placing the good of the whole
Above the one.
