Whether it be a deep baritone,
Nor a shrill high pitched soprano,
The world is waiting,
For that wonderful voice,
A voice that will whisper hope into her ears

Amidst anguish and hopelessness,
In trials and tribulation,
It is the rising voice that will count,

We have heard of the noisy gun voices,
All we want is an armed voice
Not with a gun but a pen

To write our future,
To tell of our success,
To change the world not through wars
But through words of solace
It is the voice we seek to nurture

I was thinking this was a nice way to describe the quote "the pen is mightier than a sword" from English author Edward Bulwer-Lytton but then you took it one step further to tie it to what World Pulse is all about, nurturing the voice. Without the voice there is nothing the pen can say.

Thank you for the great poem.

You are totally rights it is the voice we need to nurture. Thanks my dear and continue with the good work.
