Give voice to the mighty pen
with words flowing like ink
from eager lips.
Quivering voice resonates with uncertainty,
uttering feebly those words
written so steadily by the hand.
Life is not a poem.
Hide no more behind flowery verse.
Fill the air with outward expression
from the heart.
Know the strength that lies in inspired words
delicately received by the ear.
Feel hearts respond
to the voice's melodic timbre.
Remove all confusion through
sharpened verbal exchange.
Allow the pen its well deserved rest
and find joy in the world of
skilled verbal poets.
** Dedicated to a poet friend whose written skills well exceed his verbal skills.
