Seize The Day In Poetic Ways

With just my pen I will slay 

all doubters and cynics,

expressing my angst 

in sharp words that can cut

in literary slashes
of brilliant thoughts

finding answers to questions

and questioning answers,

till my last breath exhaled,

leaves Just a body of work

completed and spent

Finger-painting love's glory 

in flowery verses

which help me to gather 

many budding romances,

to fill up the dark, 

empty vase of my soul

and help to encourage 

the lonely to seize the 

many chance that wait 

for them as well

My politics can't hope win 

Republican'ts endorsements,

Demoncrats often tell me 

just where I should go,

my faith lies in rants,

Facts against the 

endless faux news

hoping voters discover,

new ways to hang chads, 

and help change status quo.

For we are a force, 

that can move hearts to reason, 

by simply arranging 

the gist of our words

into a living, breathing reality

think of all the poems in the past 

that drove masses to new hope, 

songs like "Give Peace A Chance." 

that helped end unjust war,

Bible words centuries old 

that led millions to God.

There is a poem yet undiscovered 

that awaits someone's name, 

with a prize oh so noble,

or a laurel leaf granted

as their trophy to claim

the ears of millions

write relentlessly daily, 

there are nations to tame.

contests still uncontested, 

seize your moment of fame.

to do anything less

is to become just a part
of the silent majority
mouthing words that 

no one hears and 

suffering days that they 

can't stand to exist in.

Uncap and Unpen your minds

bleed ink and

create understandings

of how we all can literally

seize the days
in more poetic ways

bringing rhyme and reason

to a world of woes. 

Write on....Right on...
