I have no talent…

of which to display,

In gathering of show

for voices.

In motions undone

for dance.

Bending and sculpting

leaving a statement to display.

I have no talent…

of which to share,

For winning accolades

of persuasion when sheltered with

those beyond repair.

I have no talent…

Moving among those warehoused,

Speaking to those still silent,

Pushing those motionless

past an edge smooth with

countless rubbings back and forth.

I have no talent…


I am the reason those with talent…

May shine.
