The Unheard Orator …1 of 3

First, he thinks, or maybe not
 Like everyone else whose thoughts do not have to rot
 Words repeated in his cerebral
 Before vented through his buccal

A consistent battle between within and without
 Almost like a caged bird with no out
 Wanting to man the skies higher
 But for a red muscular barrier

She silently hopes her tongue and vocal cords
 Have reached a ceasefire as regards their discords
 So many jokes and words and clap-backs
 Consigned to the bins of her mind in black sacks.

Without being told
 “I live to speak another day” was a motto she grew to hold

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
