Favorite Quote:
"Where voice had failed
my pen prevailed
and like the winds, became a gale"


My speech is slurred, my vision, blurred;

the only way that I may express a word

is through pen that's heard by less than a third

of those who will listen to the seemingly minor bird

who seems so absurd as it's had to re-word

the thoughts in its head that have endlessly stirred,

since silence is preferred more than voices unheard,

despite the fact that it was truth to which the bird referred.

This piece is an extension of my first piece from my recent startup in writing, "Seemingly Minor Bird."
