I Act, I Write (In That Order) by Mark Antony Rossi

Prevent Language
From being
The final arbiter
Of our actions

For the spirit
Takes notice
And sets the wind
in motion

Activating the beating muscle
The machinery
Of divine creation

Driving men forward

To scale…mountains
To sail…oceans
To hail…heroes
To nail…

tongues against a written wall.
