The Ripple Effect the King’s Speech
By David Smith February 19, 2011
Almighty Voice his name is clear
The King’s Speech for an audience to hold so dear;
The movie hit Almighty Voice hard
Challenges, like the King had him also scared;
Now, with help, Therapy was a hit
The movie hit a nerve as emotion lit
The ripple effect, from the vulnerability of a King
We share emotion, our inadequacies it did bring
Our greatest weakness can be our strength
The movie, the ripple effect, can go to great length
O what a joy, to overcome the odds
The vulnerability of the King
The Monarchy we applaud.
That is the ripple effect, our challenges are real
Acknowledging weakness, strength does appear.
The King’s Speech
Inspired by the Movie seen on 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.
