"For, me, it's easy. Just close your eyes. And fly."


One lone voice
Quiet but strong
Knowing wrong from right
And right from wrong.

One lone voice
Alone in the dark
Enough to stir the soul
Enough to cause a spark.

One lone voice
Strikes a nerve
Astounding - the indescribable purpose
A mind well-fed serves.

One lone voice
As soft as a summer breeze
Enough to move you
And move you with ease.

Why don’t you
Become that one lone voice
To sway or be swayed -
Allow yourself to make the choice.


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem in order to encourage people to use the voice. So many times, young people are not given adequate opportunity to voice their opinions. With this particular poem, I want to show people my age that they do, indeed, have a voice, and they can use it to change the world.

I love that idea, that one, quiet, "lone" voice can change so much. It's a really beautiful notion. Thank you for writing this.
