Just because I have lost my voice
Understand I still have a choice

People can speak
But never be heard
Nothing as powerful
As a well-chosen word

I can write and listen
Everything else the same
I don’t need to tell you
Already know my name

My mind over compensates
I am still me
Those that have eyes
Yet never see

May be I will recover
May be I shall not
This has taught me
Love what you’ve got

Hope you feel
I’m not speaking out of turn
All of us can help
Each other to learn

Thank you so much Richard for being the inspiration for this poem and for accepting it in the spirit it was intended.

About markious72

Here I wish to let my strange and vivid imagination and opinions run wild. I do hope you like what you read. I would love to be a writer, I won't pretend otherwise. Although it is only in the last couple of years that I have realised it. I guess if it meant to happen it will. Happy reading, happier writing. :-)
