Last night, after our weekly support/practice group, I joined the group at a local watering hole. During that time, I challenged them to write poetry about stuttering, in the form of a Haiku. Here's what some of them came up with. What do you think?

By Roelof

Stutterers allowed

To be speaking here tonight

Those who don't, please fake

--

Stutterer's voices

Are like caged birds to be freed

Soaring in the skies

Flowing through the words

Not something that comes easy

Story of my life...

Stand up and speak out

Your voice is one to be heard

Make the soul fearless.
