Essence of The Blues

written by: Mike Turner



To have words
But no voice
But no music
But no artistry
But no love
To speak, sing, paint, live
Only in one’s mind
But not have the wherewithal
Or is it courage?
To express these things in the corporeal world
Is it sad?
Without hope?
A source of despair?
Or is it the essence
Of the blues?
