Say It Aloud

Say it aloud

written by: Don Knowles



I took a breath
And I said it aloud
Just to myself
And I believe it
I believe
You can care
You can help
You can love others
Without them ever having to know
No need for applause
Just the knowing
That someday
That person may think of me
Smile and remember
Me pointing a way towards love
This is what I believe
I said it now
To everyone


There is a way to extinguish sadness, through human kindness.

My writing is typically written while I'm on a treadmill, so I call myself "the treadmill poet!"
Born in West Chester Pa in 1960 I have been inspired to begin writing again through my interactions with two people I care deeply about that are experiencing the torrents of mental illness.
