    i write because i've lost my mind
    and fell in love with poetry
    so little time, so much to do
    put all on hold till the peace is thru

    ......

    i had never ventured out this way
    was scared and kinda shy
    when Bishop took me by the hand
    and said come on and try

    we built a poem, line by line
    took me hours to intertwine
    words and thoughts in a design
    but Bishop told me ... take your time

    then there were poets
    i mean POETS
    that smiled and said well done
    it opened up a world to me
    that i had never known

    now my spirit yearns to speak
    of things not shared before
    casting caution to the wind
    unlocking every door

    i must admit i have to quit
    unless of course you'll permit
    me and my children to move in with you
    cause no work gets done and the rent is due

    i say quit but you all know, if poet is what i am
    i'll do some work, pay the rent and be right back again

    thank you all .... for the love ... i'm forever in your debt
    if you need me i'll be right here, destee.com org and net

    Queen,

    Keep writing because when peace is needed by a yearning soul it can be found in the scribe. Your poetry is adored sister...so keep showing us reflections that is you.

    that prompted me

    love this peice
