Everyday Voices

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 9:58 am

Every day

we make a choice

to harden

to soften

our heart

our voice

to lend a hand

to take a stand

to make the best

of each daily demand

to be a friend

with a smile to send

to also wipe tears

so that sadness will mend

to not let stresses

get the best of us

so that others we touch

can see the rest of us.

 

We can choose

to be beaten

we can choose

to be eaten

swallowed and spit

on the side of the street and

we can be ground up

like a foul piece of meat

by the cowardice controllers

who cannot take the heat

since for them

all we are

is the crack

of their seat

just a number on their list

a scrub in their fleet

when it comes to wanting us

they are never discreet

but returning the favor

its like stepping on feet.

 

We must choose

to be real

be the real deal

not just a minimal

spec of piece meal

only following commands

like a captive trained seal

we must choose what is right

through what we

really feel.

 

~Miguel
