Influence


Influence


I listen to the echoes in my head

My mental elf gives voice to fear instead

Monotone mischief in a monologue

Capricious sprites produces my minds smog


What are my goals? What are my ambitions?

Stand up and be counted no inhibitions

Make a joke and connect with humour

Cornish whispers can start new rumours


Change the world we can change the times

Incite with words sentence a verse to rhyme

Ideas dance for your recognition

To kick start and engage cognition


The grass always greener in the distance

An illusion built on persistence

A rolling stone gathers no moss they say

Mick and Keith have men with rakes they pay


Poetry in life needs life reflection

Empathy, reality in direction

Words have power combined in witches spell

Cast of spoken words unite, stories tell

Definitely lots to think about I agree. Why so we write? What drives us and why do we worry so much about the options of others? Well done Jon this one really got me going.
