Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

The Old Story

Posted Thursday, March 28, 2013

As a child
You trust
You believe
You can do anything

As a child
You believe
You are a star
You are watched
You are known
You are wonderful

Somewhere
Somehow
Someone
Speaks

And you believe
Something new

I can't
I'm too loud
I'm too selfish
I'm too silly

You tell yourself
The story
Your truth
That runs you

Stop
Wait
Tell a new story
The old story
Told again

I can
I must be heard
I'm needed
Silly is beautiful

The world needs you
You need you
The REAL you
