' changes


by John Karpinski

There is a maze of words in my brain.
In the past I would of gladly spoken.
My courage and tongue are now lame.
It is silence that I have now chosen!
Why now that I've given into defeat?
Not speaking turns out to be my sin.
Esteem dwindles as courage depletes.
I must find some way for me to win.
