The Poetry Bar

Leading or Led

what do you do
what do you say

do your thing or fall in line

who do you worship
who do you have allegiance to

when all around you…


tell me what you are looking for

crowd acceptance
some invisibility
your community
unchanging traditions

are you a follower or your own person

out, proud, loud
being who you are
living the only true you
or always guided by others

are you satisfied
