Bless me
with the fluency of fury
and the articulate voice of anger.
Spare me though,
of its affliction of aggression.

Let my pen paint
the reflection of my thoughts 
like a mirror.
Thus my lines become
clones of my imaginations.

Let creativity be 
the stubborn shadow
of my verses
and let not inspiration
fly out of my window.

    Jide, I have never read a more fitting prayer for poets. We all try to overcome anger and aggression by releasing our thoughts in verse. I especially liked "let not inspiration fly out of my window." I think that happens a lot at night when ideas for poems race through our heads but the ideas are lost the next morning. Outstanding work! Carolyn

    Hi there Jide! My oh my, your "inspiration" can't have flown out the window...I think it's hovering over your head, waiting to be caught by yourself.:) Your work flows on waves of amazing thought and metaphor. Each verse of this poem is a verbal articulation depicting your regard and scrutiny. Very clever Jide! :) Wishing you the best...God's blessings to you and yours. Mikki
