I Must Write…

woman & rose

I must write so my words come alive
And reveal the secrets my soul likes to hide
A poem results if the subject touches my heart
An essay, if the subject is tempting enough

I must write on things that affected me in life
People I watched suffer and those that hurt
My voice is but a tiny particle in the universe
My thoughts though, span the vastness of it all

I must write and give my take on things
maybe somewhere someone will sit up and take note
my words might make a difference, change a life
High hopes, but meanwhile, I continue to write
