Writers: A Poem
Many individuals say that
great writers whether we are
poets, novelists, journalists,
or songwriters have one thing in common.
To some degree, we all seek the truth.
We are all philosophers, philosophers
of ourselves, of the world around us,
whether that is our immediate space
Take it and reach for the stars here and there.
Up and down, left and right.
Stand up on the table and look at the glorious sight.
Sight of being able to read people, all the time, night and day.
Finally, when we come back down, we can all say….
Owning ourselves and helping others own theirs is always
the direction to sway.
