    Some call it inspiration
    Others call it muse
    I call it the heartbeats of life
    The result of paying emotional dues

    It's every woman I ever met
    And more that a few I'll never forget
    It's the very first time I was weak in the knees
    It's when I understood that pleasing is to be pleased

    It's the old brother who told me never say what you can do
    It's the sister back in the day who taught me what she knew
    It's everyone who took a piece of me
    Everyone I took something from
    It's all I've lost, it's all I've won

    It's two young lovers holding hands
    It's the angry young man no one understands
    Life is so full of mysterious things
    I love to express the different feelings it brings

    And so lucky am I to have a place to go
    To see how other folks express their flow
    I go where people flow from their own inspiration
    Ink on paper the final destination.

    been hoping

    I'd see this one again. It's all that you say it is...this thing we have with poetry. But may I add that the final destination is the reader's heart!

    Flow!
