How Did I Know?

How did I know . . .

when my childhood had ended?

when I'd found a lifelong friend?

that where I lived was my home?

that I am truly a writer?

that I am being true to myself?

I knew when other voices became only opinions.

Fineartist,
Thank you. I had been thinking about it for a while.

rakshit doshi,
Thank you, your words are music to my ears. i agree only as many words as you need and not one word more.

How Did I know
When I held that pen?
My hands will script many words
That I never expected to appear
As one time I just was a blank page
Now I’m accumulation of words- a poetry to be recited
Or scripted words a manuscript of a story
For those who will flip my pages
Shall clearly understand my contents

On other hand my rambling thoughts:
We all do not know until we take the first step

thanks for the lovely insight on the posts u read... a little more explination on the 'writing style' that you said i have, will make me answer your question. who better to ask than a publisher after all ;)
cheers

Lamnasra,
I thought I was the only who did that. What a beautiful response to my positing. Thank you.

I wish I could put a sign for people to be sure to come inside to look.

Hi rakshi doshi,
As I recall, I said something about you speaking in layers of meaning. This seems longer than a comment. How about an email?
I'll come visit you.

smiles,
Liz

That is beautiful and very true. I am still trying stop listening to voices of those around me and hear only my own. It will happen in time though.

ME Strauss said...

Jennifer,
Thank you, keep listening. Other voices offer information. It's the decisions that you own.

smiles,
