Selective Few

It is an honor and privilege to be a carrier, a speaker, a believer of the Power of Words...

This poem is for you: Poet, Poetess, Gifted One or Mystic One, or whatever you are calling yourself these days.

Keep The Words Flowing…Keep The Words Flowing...

It is your calling. Your duty to unleash the words and powerful thoughts that were given to a selective few like you.

Given to you so that the Words would spread and those who hear them would be fed with knowledge that came before college.

You with your gifted writing hands, with that potent mind, Keep The Words Flowing...Keep The Words Flowing...

Stories must be told, history must be told, life must be told.

Tell those stories that come to a selective few like you… Tell those stories through your prose and poems.

Represent the Word at all times with that gifted mind.

This poem is for You... Comes without an ego leading the way, comes as a reminder so that you remember that Your Words have Power…

Use Them! Believe in Them! Live Them!

Many will ignore them, many will fight you over them, and many will complain that words cannot break chains or stop their personal pain.

Smile at disbelief, walk in peace; Keep The Words Flowing...Keep The Words Flowing...
