Finding a Voice

"I never travel without my diary, one should always have something sensational to read.." 
~Oscar Wilde, 1891

Dear Diary,                                                                              April 6, 2011

I am a wandering writer.
New to the world; always a fighter.
Experiencing light and a world of mystique,
Places of normal, weird, and oblique.
I try to keep up with the world passing by
But I am falling behind the harder I try.
I feel like a new Helen Keller in ways.
In darkness and silence for each of my days.
Raising my voice yet not being heard,
I need to master the author's word.
With many thoughts and ideas that need to get out,
So I'll continue to scream and continue to shout.
I'll find a way in even if I must jump,
Because I too have to find, my own water pump....
