TO BE OR NOT recited

Written by: Brian Strand

TO BE OR NOT
Experiences re-lived
culled from images I've seen,
books recalled,places I've seen;
Re-fashioned,enhanced and changed
emphasised and re-arranged,
evoked,re-styled in shaded tones,
uniquely embossed my own;
Written out for you to see
this poem trapped,within me..
Now,you dear reader..set free
This poem trapped within my mind,
To leave it here,is it unkind?
Like a caged bird it flaps around
It sings its song,but makes no sound;
So should it stay or be set free
Or ever stay a mystery ?
