    I read the words of the wise one
    It stated how important it is to write
    To dictate our observation, lives and dreams

    The written words teaches the one’s who are born
    And the one’s not yet born. The steps once taken.
    The path that was last crossed.

    To read what is written can open your mind.
    Perhaps challenge your thoughts

    To refuse to write would deny our past
    To refuse to read could contradict our future

    I just started writing again. After so many months of
    Letting my pen and pad lie dominate on my desk.

    I just started reading again. It’s been so long since I read
    A book. That some of the words seem foreign to me.

    I stopped writing because I was angry, sad and upset.
    I stopped reading because I didn’t want to think, or know

    Now I write because I must
    Now I read because I need to know

    To write about what I see and hear.
    Perhaps can be words of warning,
    or encouragement.

    I will read what others seem and heard
    For the same reason why I write.

    Can I bear the true nature of words?
    Expressing un-harnessing
    My love, pain,
    Hurts, hope
    Dreams, plans
    And failure.

    Can my words be?
    The soldiers
    That will help me battle the demon that haunts me.
    The sailor
    That will guide me out the storm
    The warrior
    That will encourage me to go on

    Will the words adopt me?
    And become
    My mother, father
    Grandfather
    The Sister I miss
    The Uncles and Aunts I’ve known
    The mother I try to be
    The lover I want to be.

    Will it ?

    I'll just have to
    write and read
    and I'll see
    What will be

    I think your words have so much strength in them that they will point you in the right direction. I know that we are all thankful that you are writing, so that we will have the blessing of reading you. Keep forging ahead poetess.

    these words give me strength. I can trully feel where you comin from. There is a time to be mute. It's a crazy thang. When I was reading ya I was remembering a time in my life where everything was falling apart and I didn't want to sing or write. This place has helped me do that.

    Thanks for putting this piece out there. Lovely.

    Thank you so much for your love
    on my drop. It is time to do.
    What we all do so well and that is
    to flow our hearts out.
    And let the world feel our words
    because there is so much more to US

    Once again thank you for your love.

    Peace~N~Love

    So many times its just hard to get it out! Other times it flows so easily. I've been a little stagnant lately myself but the beauty of this art is slowly coming back to me. Thank you for the encouragement!
