Unspoken

A sage

of the page

is worth more than a man

in a cage

but a word unspoken

is a word misplaced

and a story untold

will never be known

by the young, the blind, or the old.

If there are things to be said

its better to say them

cause if they go unheard

then another word could emerge

and say what you weren’t.
