Posted in Leaves on the Poet Tree (Poems)


You must let the words take you
when this world tries to break you
with its heavy quiet sound
that zips your lips and drags you down
into that place where you have no voice
and you’re shouted down and told you have no choice…

You must let your inner poet shout
get your beautiful brokeness out
you, my precious friend, must believe
that even if this noisy ugly world is not ready to receive
you have a voice and it MUST be heard
because noone but YOU can speak YOUR word.
