Whisper in the Wind (Poem Sample)

Whisper in the Wind

My hands glide across the keyboard

and yet I stare at nothing

Inspiration sapped by desperation

What words can I even say?

Does nothing mean anything?


My tears dot the “I”

I cannot, I will not leave the keys

Something may yet come forth

But I’m not supposed to let it

It isn’t polite

to speak such things or in that way


Smile and wave

that’s how you do it,

get through it

One more day

Smile and wave


Stuff it down

Cuz my irritation

isn’t welcome here

Never was

Will it ever be?


Will anyone ever care to hear?

That I’m tired

and sometimes angry

At the ignorance and lies

At arrogance and pompous clowns

Who have never lived real life


The keyboard does no justice

Yet it is where I am

My canvas to paint a better world

With vivid color, brush the land
