    Have I wrote anything lately?
    Yes, I write all the time.
    Why, just this morning, I wrote about my struggle.

    The struggle of survival to face another unseen day and how blessed I am to see it.
    I wrote about my three-year old blessing, how I pour love, encouragement, and strength fresh into her every morning so that she will not be afraid to face new challenges head-on.

    I wrote about faith.
    I get up every morning to go to work so that I may be able to provide for my family because I am help-meeting my husband where he can’t meet right now.
    Waiting for my change to come.

    Have I wrote anything lately?
    Every step I take is a letter.
    A completed task is a word or more appropriate a verb.
    My tears of frustration are the conjunctions…and…but…if
    Every blessng is the period.
    Every worry and doubt is the question mark.

    Have I wrote anything lately?
    I’m writing now, I’m writing creativity that comes from within,
    I’m writing expression from the heart and I’m writing wisdom from the spirit.

    I am writing right now, don’t you see it?
    Yet, you ask, have I wrote anything lately?
