A to Z Challenge 2020
Take up the pen
Hold to your truth
Write against their backs
of injustice and fear

Write with love
With poetry on your tongue
With passion as your ink
Write out the rhythm
that only you compose

The world will forever
need the words
of people who listen close
and look slowly
capturing reality sometimes
capturing dreams sometimes
in lines of letters
that strung together
give us clarity and hope

Writers write on

Give the world your voice
and listen not
to the haters and doubters

Hear instead
the sweet whispers
of your readers
asking you to
Write on and on


For April, I am challenging myself to both #NaPoWriMo but also the #AtoZChallenge.
