Struck Dumb

When I couldn't say a word
Struck dumb half-way to the end of the lecture
As my students became a voice specialist
prescribed all sort of drugs ...

I kept struggling to utter some words
Struck dumb I was.
Jokingly they wanted to clear whatever block my vocal tract
With their broken JavaScript code..

Their suggestion was a therapy that put
A smile and dimples in my cheek.
And I windup the lecture with a class work...
less talk, more coding..
hmnn, hmmn, hmmn, and it ends.

Struck dumb at the park, signaled to the tricycle
And he moved back a little, 
Rant, I couldn't as I drove out calmly.

Muted I was for 2 days,
A call from my sister and mum
and the answer was...
hmnn, hmmn, hmmn, I couldn't talk.

As I pondered within me..
How would I teach when I couldn't speak,
How would I evangelize when I couldn't talk,
hmmn, hmmn, hmmn, I prayed silently.

Though, I've visited clinic.
Headache has gone, body temperature normal.
but its still, hmmn, hmmn,
till I used my Mum algorithm.

And there I was, testing, testing 
for the first time in 2 days I could hear myself speaking.
As I began to echo "Thank you Lord!", "Thank you Lord!"
As the testing parameter to my vocal tract function.

Broken rocks same as broken heart
Into pieces which no love will join them
They only stay at where they seems to stay
