We each have a way with words,
some better than others,
but if I had my “druthers”,
I’d rather have mine read than heard.

A few folks speak for a living,
lawyers, physicians –
hot-aired Politicians…
we’re all better for the “warmth” they’re giving.

Some people write their say
words of wisdom, expressive
sometimes brief; some excessive…
but it’s their flair, they write that way.

There are people who sing for their meals,
lyrical music played to the heart
from the first note (a great place to start),
troubadours with record deals.

But all these words I write instead
can be sung or spoken
and you’ll get your fix if my words aren’t broken.
It’s a token of esteem when my words are read.
