Give me a pen and paper;
leave me the rest
and words will spill out
without pre-plan and
imprint themselves on a page or two.
Give me air and space;
watch those words spring up
breathing with life
stories learned, dreams fulfilled
places traveled, experiences earned.
Give me strength and courage;
release me from fear of the unknown and
the half-heartedness to send these words out
so that I’ll not, with bias or harsh words,
attract critics – patterns my thoughts, pen, and paper form.
