Begin With This

Published by DOODIE | Saturday, November 17, 2012 8:06 AM


Inspired and enlightened after a long period of writer's block.


Uncertain
I wonder
The best way to begin.
Can a look
Or a word
Calm the chaos within?

So out of control
My heart and my head
Each day
It’s a battle
Getting out of my bed.

Is the answer
In others
Awaiting my cue?
I worry
And ponder
Knowing not what to do.

To healers
I’ve looked
Astute doctors and priests
For a chant
Or a drug
That will grant me relief.

Now you stand here
Before me
Offering paper and pen
In a whisper
You answer
This is where you begin.

Indeed, the pen and paper is where we all begin. So powerful!
