to restrain your pen,
stifling your creativity.
I will never allow another to mute my voice
or gag my creative expression, writing to impress others and neither should you.

    Super great advice rhonda. I've had so many people try to tell me to change a poem because I didn't use proper English or because it "might sound better this way". But then it wouldn't be "ME" or sound the way I wanted it to. I tell new poets not to ever let anyone talk them into changing something they knew was already good the way it was. I accept and invite helpful critique but I gotta be me. Great write my friend. God Bless, JB ;)
