The King’s Speech
Inspired by the Movie January 31, 2011
By David Smith
The King’s Speech, they call it
As history is told
The roller coaster of emotion as change becomes so bold.
Stammer into a mike as a mentor encourages Him through
The agony to breathe as tension is so true.
Working through a handicap as childhood hurts are deep
Living through the pain for the Commonwealth to keep.
He may be a King as he pants another speech.
It’s my inner child so desperate and so weak.
That is why there’s Toastmasters,
And mentors O so grand
To know we have a voice to share in this great land.
Whether a king or a commoner of old
Expose the vulnerability, reality to be told
The King’s Speech is written for us as we share the pain
Exposed in humility
His strength to share our gain.
