The Voice of Reason--By Marcus Omer--United States

The Voice of Reason

If heroes proved with tools of war
themselves for ending strife,
let us with pen in hand implore,
that we give hope for life.

The storms of life can wrath unlock,
as shadows steal the day.
No harbors found among the rocks,
but quietly in the bay.

A lighthouse stands on farthest cay,
it through the night will shine.
Silently points the leeward way,
the lost seamen to find.

The voice of reason will be found
to carry forth the fight
and save from self the wayward bound,
all men to glorious Light!

Marcus Omer became serious about writing after he retired in 1997. He draws his inspiration from the many emotions we experience in life. He has published Of Sunshine and Clouds with iUniverse and The Winding Road with Shadow Poetry. He’s also published in Snippets, The Magic of Words and several issues of Golden Words.

  1. Dear Marcus,
    The sentiments express bring to mind my philosophy that poetry brings people together; thank you for sharing your "voice of reason."
