Looking Through Stained Glass

The Power of Speech

At six I didn’t sleep for over a week
Fear of being damned for a kiss on the cheek
Words my pastor were constant to preach
Ah yes the power of speech

Working for my degree made my nerves fry
Kept hearing the words “It never fails to try”
Encouragement is a subject not required to teach
Ah yes the power of speech

Her beauty takes my breath away
“Nice boobs” was all I thought to say
Her slap corrected that social breach
Ah yes the power of speech

Two years later I have a different surprise
The diamond of intent bring tears to her eyes
“Yes” brings in a star once out of my reach
Ah yes the power of speech
