    I write to feed my soul.
    I write so things can be told.
    I write because I have something to share.
    I write because you are here.

    Published works in my name.

    It's not about the money or the accolade fame.

    I want to express my heart to the world,
    and make a difference in what is heard.

    We all write for many reasons.

    Touching minds and thru all seasons.
    Continue to keep the flame alive.

    Of poetry.

    Of love.

    Of things in our lives.

    When much else in life fails, a writer still wants to write, about a variety of reasons and seasons. I liked the way you convyed this feeling poet. I think we can all relate to this piece.

    Amen, to this Hodee
    loved the smoothness
    of flow but very
    introspective words
    to each of us...
    who not only write
    to free ourselves
    but to free others
    as well...

    Thank you for keeping yet another mind, heart and soul free
    as well as enlightened.
