Listen to poem:
let me pause slow down a minute and look inward to adjust my lens there’s more to life than operating in react mode let me pause to ask the real question the why is so much more revealing than the what let me break the cycle and if need be, like a rookie put training wheels back on my bike refuse to live on automatic pilot I’m more than the sum of my parts similar to the iceberg with most of me under my surface always more to me that meets the eye I am more than an organism with likes and dislikes more than a machine with on and off switches I’m comparable to a complex equalizer filtering and remastering random captured signals I’m the maestro of my life creator of my realm master of my domain I am simply more I am so much more all for asking the real question the why is always so much more revealing than the what Read on air by invitation ~ June 2, 2021 'WORDS & MUSIC' AP: 1st place 2021 Submitted on June 3, 2021 for contest ALL YOURS (JUN 5) sponsored by BRIAN STRAND - RANKED 1ST Originally posted on June 2, 2021

Dear Line, your introspection is deep, rich, revealing and beautifully intimate and your lovely poetic voice enhances the intimacy to draw the reader/listener in more closely to experience your expressive spirit. Simply splendid. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

Ahh, your writing is really fantastic! Your superb recording and your sweet voice help throw even more light on this poetry, and that why it is more important than the what.
