Use your voice

write the good fight

Spit it out

It's a choice

To say

What needs to be said

One you won't have

when you're dead

All that's left

When you're gone

Is what you've said

So

Use your voice

Thanks for reading!

    I agree! Say it loud and proud with no fear. Everyone has their own insights and opinions.

    🤍 Perfect message. Learning slowly. Albeit with a bit of dutch 🤍 Congrats on TS. Thought I'd commented. Evidently not x

    Just Speak! man! Nice job - love it!

  • Rachel Deeming3 months ago

    I liked the rhythm of this, Paul as well as the message. We should all use our voices, for sure. Even when they're gravelly post-Covid ones. Congrats on TS too!

    Very inspirational and very well written piece

    Ooh, that rhyme! It really brings it home and I love its power at the end. Fantastic message. I'm inclined to believe people leave behind their cumulative impact, words, actions, support, and personalities, all combined. However as a writer, I can't say I disagree with our words having the ability to outlive us in profound ways, and that we need to nurture that reality and use our toolset to the utmost degree. Otherwise, what is the point?

    Back to say congrats friend

  • Kristen Balyeat3 months ago

    Just yes. Say it all before you're dead. I love this so much! I've made it a practice to think about the fact that someday I'll be dead. It really helps me overcome a lot of fear and just do the damn things, live in the moment, say the words, speak love without holding back, and publish even when the doubt monkeys start screaming (don't ask what a doubt monkey is, my fingers just typed it before my brain could catch up) Great piece, Paul! Congrats on the top!

    Yes! Spit it out, indeed. Well said. Congrats on the TS

  • Dana Crandell3 months ago

    Um, Congratulations, sir! This defintely deserves the honor.

  • A good reminder after being absolutely washed in the Vocal Writing Awards. Like, not even a single shortlisting? Come on! Ah, well. Time to get my Arid Challenge entry ready to go even though that challenge has the least number of placements since they introduced Runners Up. Yep, no doubts here at all. #BoycottNewYorkTimes

    Preach! Clearing my throat chakras as we Speak! 😁 👍😊

    Well, I was going to say something sarcastic, but then I thought, "What if we're building the digitial library for future humans, or aliens, or..." Never mind. I'll think of something sarcastic. Seriously, though, this is some good food for thought.

    But what's that Maya Angelou quote? Is it even Maya Angelou? Hang on....
