My Journey Into Words


Sometimes, I am afraid of my thoughts,
     Ideas swirling and whirling in my head;
Poems and stories, visions and dreams,
           Twisting, spinning, moving and changing.                              

                         I always need paper and pen.

Since I was a child the words have flowed,
     Like the seeking water of a forest stream;
It frightens me and at the same time amazes me,
             I am unable to ever stop that I know for sure.

                         This is my writing journey.

It is part of me, it is like breathing clean air,
     Like a dam ready to burst the words are waiting;
They overflow and engulf everything in their release,
               It is all about emotions, feelings and messages,

                         This is my life's destiny.

Like giant crashing waves hitting a distant shore,
     The words sweep over me, swallowing my world;
I am not even aware of what I will create with my pen,
               At times it begins with just one beautiful word.

                         This is my need and passion.

And like a thing with a mind of its own it grows,
     The pen drips with the words, the mind and pen mingling;
And when I read what I have created my tears flow,
                I hang my head with the enormity of it.

                           This is my writing journey.

    My spirit is deep as an ocean, focused as a river and calm as a lake as I travel the meandering river of life . . . .
