A Poetess Is Born


The emotions running wild
Yearning to be freed.
No escape found in the voice
My mind is where they’re sealed.

The written’s better than the said
‘Cause the ears are all engaged.
I gather the wandering eyes
For my soul is about to be staged.

The show goes on
And I laugh, and I whine.
The sensations flowing out
And I yell, and I smile.

I watch everyone read me
Their eyes wide with surprise.
“She’s made of dynamic colors”
Is all they could memorize.

The splashes of my spirit
Burning through the core.
Searing words of my passion
Could not be read anymore.

The sparkle in their eyes
Speaks of my charm.
The applause fills the air
They exclaim”A poetess is born”.

Never thought I'd see the day that studying became something I enjoyed, but here we are. My blog is where I put my thoughts, I also plan to start a blog of short stories, with a new prompt for each story.

The intention of our presence here is not to fulfill expectations. It is to promote questioning and debate. Both of which should be respectful and informed. Learning comes from listening not shouting. Our opinions may not be yours, and that is how it should be.

Enter the woo . . .
