What They Said When Io Ran


Words liberate

Poetry heals


The sages of the ages passed

Tried their best to lock away

The knowledge of what words can do

They should not keep them from you


They will try to chain you with meter

And clip your wings with rhyme

Say that you are not good enough

Because you cannot write like them

Because your iambs are trochees and your lines stumble on broken feet-


But they do not see

That you are writing a new song

They do not see

That a new language is required

To tell the world of how you were
