I Spoke

The problem is you're quiet
you don't know: Speak your mind
and the words that do come out;
a gathered waste of time.

Your process isn't simple
but your structure's not complex
it's hard to see a bad design
if the blueprint's always swept

Man I'm tired
said the pen
so very full of ink
for the fear I chose to write
has kept me out of sync

But then again
if I could read
the words; they're never said
perhaps a reel of better thoughts
could pop into my head

And if I say
the thought in mind=
Development in growth!
will there even be a notice?
an outcome of
...I spoke
