Speech


Speech is a gift,
A gift from God to Man,
Speech is an expression,
Unique to Man alone,

Man and his speech,
To express their love,
To express their sorrow,
To express their comfort,
To communicate all that is felt,

Man and his speech,
To express his thoughts,
To express his ideas,
To close barriers between us all,

They why do we miscommunicate,
Why is it hard to communicate between two,
Is it this hard globally?
Is it why we have wars?
Is it why we have crisis?
Even with a blessing given to all,

Why is there so much unspoken?
Why is there feeling unsaid?
Why is heartbreak from words?
Why does words pierce the most?

Is speech truly a blessing?
Speech is to express,
Speech is to inspire,
Speech is what sets us apart from all.
