Express what lies in your heart
For it’s a gift
Not sullied by ego
And an unmet need to be recognized
For there are many who may tell you
Your experiences don’t meet the standards
For suffering
Joy
Redemption
Some souls are so entrenched in emptiness
You’re wasting time wishing
For a teardrop from the deadest of eyes.

Some must be hidden from view
Only shared by you and God
Don’t descend into grandstanding
Desperate to be noticed
Eventually the stars burn out
And no one will be able to ascertain
What you stood for
Who you’re about
Caught in the maelstrom
Crying wolf as you wait impatiently
For the move that never comes.

Be passionate and willing to take risks
Don’t try to dazzle with multi syllable words
In hopes of being stroked by the intellectual snobbish
Or laid by a sewer rat
But damn’t defend every couplet
Or snatch of verse
Or be prepared to be pelted by stones
By an unforgiving
Manipulated crowd
Rightly declares you’re an opportunist.
