I AM a Writer

When

I’m at peace

within my heart

and soft, hushed whispers

sing to me.

I’m wrapped

in folds of gentle vows

of secrets kept

it sets me free.

Free

to speak

what’s in my heart

to bleed upon the written page

no worries and no discontent

my thoughts lie not within a cage.

Poetry

soars within my heart

its words do often beg to speak

aching hands and tattered pencil

in lyric form, its truth they seek.
