War of Words

war of words

By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.

These words clash to control my thoughts

They determine the thinking of my pen

As it slashes genius across this blank canvas

These are my thoughts fighting for freedom

From the confines of my mind

The deep bruises left on this paper

Define the emotions felt as this is written

Written from the heart of passion

Spoken like soulful lyrics flowing from the voice of an angel

Words that need no weapons

Only using the force resonating for the waiting ear

To hear

These words are crazy and wild

But organize themselves into a harmonious union

Making sense out of senseless confusion

Trapping the heart into an emotional conundrum

The battle for supremacy rages in my head

Waging a war of words inside my mind

    a poem that speaks about its own creating. i like it.

    there is always a battle over what makes the page and what is left behind – for another day.
