Samuel Malik Canty: the Word Bird. I am the author of Four Poetry Books, I understand my Purpose, and my words are my proof...


The Eyes spoke volumes even though a word was never uttered...

The tension filled the air with cupid’s tears...

Another garden growing dead because Love was not being properly fed...

Another of his precious arrows got uprooted and polluted...

The Eyes spoke volumes...They were distant, they seemed drained and filled with pain.

There was no laughter, and Church Hugs had Replaced Closeness.

Smile were being sent out of the vicinity and warned not to come back.

Silence was given a New Role and Control of the atmosphere.

Conversations were regulated to nods and gestures that are filled with empty symbols and words that don’t nurture the heart.

It is in the Eyes. where Pools of Emotion meet and can Speak Volume without uttering a word.
