Express Yourself

The only letters that are too late
are those that don’t arrive.

Only sentiments not expressed
are the ones that don’t survive.

Time is wasted searching for words
to fit the moment or the day.

Expressing yourself is most difficult
when emotions get in the way.

Pick up a pencil and find the strength
to let your feelings show.

Letters written and never sent
are a cause of the unknown.

Try to be heard above the clamour
as we struggle through everyday life,

Don’t drag those daily misfortunes
under the cover of the night.
