An Awesome Force, is the Written Word

Updated on September 29, 2014
as the morning sky does awake
as the morning sky does awake
a skillful writer sets the mood
a skillful writer sets the mood
a darkening sky threatens
a darkening sky threatens
anxious leaves await their fate
anxious leaves await their fate
an approaching storm
an approaching storm
a wind picks up
a wind picks up
the storm approaches
the storm approaches
The once brightened sky is overcome by darkness
The once brightened sky is overcome by darkness
A sudden glimmer of hope
A sudden glimmer of hope
the trees rejoice
the trees rejoice
A new and fresh start, to a better day
A new and fresh start, to a better day


Are you a writer of the English Language, or a composer of the musical word,

Is your work so complex in its present form, that it's better written than heard?

Do you think before you write things down, or spontaneously let all words flow,

Convey the best and most positive message, or dwell in the negatives, to show?

We've been told in historical references, the pen is to be mightier than a sword,

In statements made and with no charade, can be so aggressive, or not untoward.

The sharpened blade of the words on parade, may be such an awesome force,

They may cut down an opponent in their resolve, a tsunami wave, with no recourse.

The words we choose shall never loose, the gentle touch, or in their sweetness,

Simply refuse to loose any ruse, care so much, in its totality, its completeness.

Decisions we make, the choices we take, are so meaningful, without illusion,

Their pleasantness, with all its appropriateness, must be of our own resolution.

Writing words, those biting words, may create havoc and then so much confusion,

Much better selection of the adjectives we use, may compensate, without delusion.

Words from the heart are each a part, of just being humanistic, in our connection,

Our spirits shall soar, in those words we adore, and in a relativity, to their affection.

As each writer writes, into hours of the night, under the watch of a brightening moon,

The expression and his intentions are so reflective, as words sung in a favorite tune.

The special notes of his song sets the mood, and strong emotions that he holds within,

As those beautiful sounds float on airy breezes, with its joyful message, then to blend.

      A writer does have much power. What goes down on paper is a force to be reckoned with, if only more would appreciate it that way! This is a poem in truth, indeed! A true master of words you are, Who, and I'm sharing.
