What Does it Take

What does it take

For our words to be heard

For our passion to be felt?

How many poems do we have to write

That fall on deaf ears

Before we question

Our gifts our abilities?

How many stories

Do we have to tell?

We write because we have something to say

A song to sing

A story to tell

A message to get out

One we pray does not fall on

Deaf ears,

But like everyone we get frustrated

We question our abilities

Our worth.
