Example Poem:
Tell Me of Your Anger in Whispers (Choi’s  Sonnet)
Should you be moved to speak in anger, dear,
I ask that first you test your words alone.
You’ll want to be assured your meaning’s clear.
If anger stems from blunder of my own
I’ll not defend actions you don’t condone.
If thoughtful I certainly will atone.
It’s wise of you my dear, therefore, to wait,
re-think the message goal and contemplate
how goals are reached when embraced by your mate.
We want to solve a problem, not to fight.
With cause to pause and think, I shall relate.
Now here’s the perfect way to do this right.
My love, use whispers closely late tonight.
I love you, dearly; I will make it right.

Example Poem
Lead and Follow  (American Forte Sonnet)
Just follow your individual quest.
Pursue what stimulates your mind and soul.
When you’ve done jobs with care, and done your beat
That’s all that counts and that’s your only role.
Compare not yourself; other’s have their goal,
which may not seem in synch, in part or whole.
You need not better any one, but need
to do your very best, then you succeed.
You may have skills enabling you to lead.
That leadership is not the goal, you see.
But if you can help others when they need
a guide, you just help building their esprit.
Where you should follow, don’t compete; be free
to play roles that enhance in small degree.
