Vocal stand


My voice has carried me for many miles
Making decisions taking in a stride
Managing thoughts with empty space
Listening to all while they say grace

Talking words in your head
Whilst voicing them you just dread
Having your thoughts analysed by all
You shut off from feeling just so you don’t stall

In front of many there you stand
Feeling lost empty you glance all around
Looking for that one face to see
Where u block out all the annoying little things

Having your voice and making it heard
You want to say it and not for it to be blurred
Heavy breathing and hands start to shake
Your turn now don’t mess it up for goodness sake

Now take that stand and do me proud
For your words you say, say them loud
I am right here by your side
Let them see you shine so bright

    I get it, this is all about karaoke, right? You got the rap down on it anyway. Nearest I come to it would be - Sea-Shell Shope.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
