    Clapping is used as a symbol
    Of recognition

    Clapping is used to applaud
    Those who do well

    Clapping gives you a since
    Of pride
    And sometimes a standing ovation

    Clapping embraces the joy
    In ones heart

    Clapping is so simple

    Clapping can be in a manner to lift ones spirits up

    And the reciever
    Absorbs the energy
    And never gives up

    We used a lot
    Of things with our five senses
    Because sometimes
    Words aren't enough
    To really mention

    To release the tension,anger,resentment,and bitterness

    Sometimes you have to cry aloud
    And release the stress

    And making sounds with your heart
    In a poetic art

    Describes the things you intend to say
    In a mannerable fashion
    That is okay

    But clapping gets everyones attention
    And you're not allowed to make people listen

    So I release every anxiety
    That hides in me
    Of today

    And yesterday

    To a page that will listen
    And will endure much friction
    With the scribble of my pen
    Then bare witness to my testimony

    But to make it easier
    I'd rather clap, or I'd rather tap my fingers on the desk
    Of maybe open my mouth
    And make music with my voice
    I'd rather paint a picture
    From a story
    My story

    And as I'm the author
    Of my story
    Write every thing in
    That I think you should know
    For I've accomplished everything

    By observations
    And my hypothesis
    Brings a conclusion

    That anyone
    That looses

    Will not fight
    To be free
    And do what makes them trully happy

    And so I do what makes me trully happy
    I write to you
    Although I can't see your faces
    I write to you
    With my heart

    And open letter
    And I sieze the opportunity
    To read yours

    And in turn
    We are giving eachother
    A part of ourselves

    And our blessed
    So I Clap to get your attention

    And unfold this open letter
    For you to read

    I unfold and hold it open
    I'm not ashamed of what
    I've had to go through

    Not ashamed
    Because I've overcome
    By victory

    The clapping
    Represents intervention
    By Him I was redeemed
    And He has rescued me into
    Eternal hope and bliss.
    And through His blood
    I have the victory.

    .....Still clapping.....
