The gray sky stifles me
with it's thick fog
of underlying epistles,
causing my soul to shudder

I feel as heavy as a mountain,
but I'm only a molehill
on the edge of earths bend

my hands, he says
are too small
to write big
so I stick to the surface
and scribe
of faint occurrences
that define naught

because he's fearful
of my poems truth

    Do not remain stifled! You are great and greater still when you are no longer unbounded by chains to be TRUE to yourself! Best of days and be happy! Brgds. George

    Nobody else in life can define you correctly except you, and I think you write beautiful AND big. Sometimes when people don't like themselves is when they bring others down. Open up and show your heart because that is what poetry soup is . A room full of friends who love to write. God bless you. Christie
