What Have I?

What have I,

but words to share?

Written dialogue

to parlay upon

naked parchment,

for perusing eyes to grasp

in thoughtful consideration.

What have I,

but provoking prose

to lay before the masses

in literative medium,

with a wordsmith's fancy

of arousing

an emotional awareness?

What have I

but poetic vision

to extract sensation

from intuitive beings,

who seek a solace

in something they can comprehend,

beyond their reason?

What have I,

but these simple words,

to reach, to move,

to communicate

with those

who otherwise,

wouldn't harken

to such reflection?

What have I,

but words to share?
