A Gift


I thought I should talk about something different today,
I thought I should talk about a gift,
A gift that can't be given nor stolen from you,
A gift that you and only you could choose whether to share or not.

Listen to the gift i'm speaking of,
This is a gift of courageous inspiration to others,
A gift of motivation to those who feel abandoned.

This isn't just a gift but a magnanimous gift, that needs to be dispatched to the people to hear because of it's perpetual stature,
I thought I should talk about something different today.

I thought I should write about a gift that could teach and spread w'sdom into our inner-being,
A gift that turns imaginations into reality,
This is a gift I call poetry.
