Stand and Don’t Stammer
Stand a little taller in the exposing light,|
let your realities come to bear.
Give a new clarity to the wonders of sight,
focusing on the pinpoint of the square.
Unleash a voice for the beliefs that you hold,
reticence shall not serve you well.
Embrace the countenance of the newly bold,
awash in a torrent no words can quell.
Cockiness and surety are cousins, to be sure,
sorted by those who receive their touch.
True self-belief is intoxicatingly cast to inure,
rebuffing dishonesty’s acid etched crutch.
Talk directly to us in well-measured tones,
we may embrace the content of what you espouse.
Clarify the musty; yes, expose the unknowns,
a magnificent meeting of minds you’ll arouse.
