Unspoken Words

Those who don’t speak
seek words that work.
Unspoken words dance
inside a musical mind
when they get the chance.
Unspoken words are not
heard but still can hurt.
Unspoken words are
thoughts that are caught
in a neurological web.
Unspoken words don’t
occur. They conquer
our ability to express.
They remain suppressed.
Let unspoken words
become spoken thoughts.
Free the words you keep
buried. Speak unspoken
words, so they are heard.
Speak words and don’t
just hear them: listen.
Listen and allow words
to be spoken – thoughts
to be expressed. Release
the words from within
and don’t forget to listen.




War Zone

I am at war with myself.
The war zone is in my brain.
Enemies hide in trenches
with all their henchmen.
I can’t stand the battle
that consistently rattles
my head. The war proceeds
without any help from me.
This is a war I can’t see.
Who will win? Will it matter
when all is gone – destroyed?
Will I be able to rebuild?
I hope I can send my troops
home – far from a war zone.

Writing my Wrongs

I know my rights.
I have the right
to be happy –
to be free –
to be nothing
but myself. Me,
I know my rights.
When I’m not right,
I write. I write
all my wrongs
and I release
pain that has
stayed with me
for so long.
I know my rights.
I have the right
to write my wrongs –
to get rid of thoughts
that don’t belong.

Forever Thankful

How can I ever express

How much you impact

My day. Never go away.

I say thanks. Thank you

For being yourself.

I just wish you knew

How much you’ve helped.

I’m forever thankful

For your soul and spirit.

I forever say thanks,

Hoping you hear it.
