People hearing without listening

As one gets older as the years go by, true friends become harder and harder to come by. Inner circles and cliques become hard to break, especially among people in high places.

Everyone appears to 'have it all together' but in the shadows may be silent cries no one hears.

And in the naked light I saw, Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking, People hearing without listening,
People writing songs, that voices never share.
And no one dared, Disturb the sound of silence.

‘The Sounds of Silence’ by Simon and Garfunkel

‘The Sounds of Silence’ sung by Atrocity in the movie trailer for ‘Watchmen’
