Written in celebration of National Poetry Month - 2007
When the world echoes sounds
that would keep us down
Poetry sends back refrains that say
Let me lift you
Let me give you insight to light your way
Cope with life's inconsistencies
Comprehend the reality that
uncertainty paves the road we must all travel
Let me share answers from ancestors
With youth and elder alike--
Share with truth seekers knowledge that empowers
Let not the fear of this hour
rob the world this cherished light
or deny tomorrow it's victory
This is the charge of poetry
For this she shall ever reign supreme
