I would like to kick off my personal celebration of National Poetry Month with an excerpt from my book Silver sPHere.
A form of expression written spoken sung that begun with simple thoughts brought to life that I give to share bare my mind my soul picking up the shattered pieces of life torn by words
Like a fist battered and bruised rouge black and blue
mentally unstable that form words into syllables that scare the heart sinks to the pit of your stomach weighing you down causing an endless frown anger and pain retribution times the only solution
Like a bandage that heals the womb in time perseverance faith strength mentally sound stable as solid ground profound provoking thoughts to ease the heart soon to lift up from the pits of your stomach this natural high this undying unconditional love that leads to a utopia your space your worth
Your spoken words that are heard by listening ears inflict more damage than a fist times inflicted like a kiss before that mind has spoken think of unspoken the hidden the between the lines fine print God sent billboards neon signs use the divine intellect to choose your words wisely confide in yourself before you confront your friend or foe see the facts before you act
All in love
All in intent
All that is spoken is meant for that moment in time
All everyone speaks
All everyone hears
