Out of our senses we can utilise
Sight sound and touch for taking in,
Words and touch for sending out
Our messages to others.
Some of us find words too tight to use
And although touch can be bi-useful
Our bodies really use it as a sensor
Not a projection of our selves.
As such the scheme seems somewhat unbalanced
That only one of five can communicate
Ourselves to others.
Those who are dumb from birth must bear confusion
Embarrassment and frustrated intentions,
For only love can touch without intruding
And even then the meaning can be grey.
