A Writer’s Worth

why worry or wonder what the writing is worth
when without it, the world over, the wise cannot be made worthy

without which, victory holds no weight
and nothing can hold back an enemy
let alone win warriors a state

why wonder why
when once the word touches the eye
it sounds in the ear
and beats to the soul’s rhythm

bringing a smile or tear
and exposing all that we fear or hold dear

why worry where a writer finds his work
when his weapon is that which birthed the world
and without which nothing would be here
