He is Afraid to Write the Words

He is afraid to write the words.

He is afraid to write the words
that will make hearts pound
out sixty-fourth notes in rooms
without sound.

The doubts that plague him
have plagued us all, yet such
gales of wavering keep windows
of wonder shut.

He is afraid to write the words
that could bring tears of tolerance
to the eyes of the ignorant.

Pursuits bereft of plume and pen
fill infinite hours with memories
that are not worth remembering.

He is afraid to write the words
that others feel but cannot say
because they cannot write.

He is afraid to write the words.
