Words Full of Silent Struggles

by jarrod   Jan 25, 2011


Words full of silent struggles,
formed heavy with whitened knuckles.
What really makes the word true,
giving it's meaning and value?

What if only one had desired to write,
our stories simply sung at night.
What if none had wished to read,
a bland melody forever copied.

What would have been forgotten,
everything but the social rotten?
Especially not the quiet scenery,
remembered from fleeting memory.

Our poems would want to share,
Yet no souls would ever care.

    ^^ Theres nothing like coming out with a strong opening stanza...I absolutely loved this! This totally describes what writers go through, I couldn't have worded that better!

    ^^ Good questions! I think the answer is, the entertainment and poetic world would be sooooo boring!

    I have nothing to say about the ending stanza besides I really quite enjoyed it. I wouldn't critique that at all!
    Great write!
