A Poem Manifesto

Our Words United

We honor the wordsmith.
We commemorate creators.
We parade for emcees.
We shed competition and
shout each other’s names.
Behind a mic,
behind a pen,
within our dialogue
we are changemakers.
We are liberators
of lost thoughts
and reflections
of conjured dreams.

We are guides when stars
cannot pierce the clouds,
and we are light when suns
have exhausted their glow.

We are here.

And on this day,
we celebrate…

Day of the Poet:
Our words united.
