The Impact

Arising from my humble abode 
    on the Lower East Side
I send out my message 
I may trouble 
the "wise and the great" 
    with my words 
Icy winds will seem 
    are blowing now
yet the words keep coming
    Once you are out there (published) 
You are EXPOSED

    Yes, we are all exposed even being here and letting our thoughts be known. It's a very exposing world today!! Good or bad, we must decide!

    Your words are so true. Tell me - have you published a book? Well let us know. I hope it's for the best. Lucilla

    i'm intrigued - i'm wondering if you're referring to the soup or are you published someplace else? but you're right - "once you are out there, you are exposed" - well said!
