A Souper Good Bye

how do i say good  bye
to a group of girls 
and a crowd of guys
and try to speak
with tears in eyes
of struggles we have
vocalized
of emotions we have
emphasized
of passions we have 
recognized
of feelings we hope others
realize
of truth a little 
compromised
in short
we let the world know 
that we spoke
and that we spoke
eloquently

God made broken hearts 
pick up pens
and write what 
he was saying to them
God took creative minds
and wrote purposes
so divine
God put love in lonely hearts
that picked up pens
and created art
and unlike most
that toast the occasion
tempted by the devil
to drink and forget
we the scribes
chisel our words in stone
reminding our posterity
that they are not alone
each and every word has grown
and some times spoken from
the Throne
our speech, our claim
our poem
WILL LIVE ON!
