This piece was written almost two years ago, but inspired to be published by a recent Daily Post challenge which raised the question why we blog. I began to reflect on the experiences I’ve been so fortunate to have all because I took a risk and introduced my work to the “cyber sphere”. I haven’t posted a personal piece in a while, so I dedicate this to those that continue to give “voice” to their words . .
single melodic voice – united makes a powerful sound
all represent a story – our crosses to bear
that’s what makes us authentic
we are over comers – survived what many didn’t
our message universal – no one is exempt
soldiers to combat ignorance and injustice
a voice for the overlooked – every situation unique but not uncommon
we hear you and give voice to your silent cries
some say poetry is dead but as long as life is we will be here
shining the light in the dark places
