Today on national poetry day
We're challenged to write a message
Anything at all you want to say
It doesn't have to be impressive
Or perhaps I should say, that whatever you say
Is impressive, I want to hear it!
So write it down or speak it out
Don't hide away your message
Mine to you is imperfect
But it comes right from my heart
Words have power to change the world
Now's the time to start.
