Restlessly, relentlessly
I roam in the dark
unable to sleep, too excited
by thoughts in my heart and head.

I only need a scrap of paper
any pencil stub will do –
to write, to write and to write
to make a ‘statement’ for humanity’s sake.

Let this blog like a Force-12 hurricane
be that scrap of paper and stub
to affirm the ideals of:
goodness and love, freedom,
equity and social justice.
Let’s speak poetry; let’s spill words.
