A Voice For A Hero (I)

Throughout his adolescence he searched for his voice. Alone in the mountains, he tried to sing higher than the crowns of the trees. In the city, he whispered to fire hydrants and stoplights. Many times he was amazed at what came out of his mouth.

But others never heard his voice, not even his grandmother, wrapped as she was into the homes of his childhood. It wasn’t that he didn’t try to speak; it was just that no one seemed to care to listen.

He never grew desperate, always believing that someday his voice would take a hold of him.
