I Woke Up This Morning

a poem by Bill Powers, Denver VOICE vendor


I woke up this morning, so dark and bleak, unable to continue my laborious routine.

My spirit trudges on, yet the body has grown weak. Still I awake, and sorely I need.

When at last the VOICE cries out, “you can come and stand with me.” And now it’s not so dark & bleak.

I thank you VOICE for the change to proceed, as an active member of society.
