Your Words

I read your words,
delicately laced with warmth and beauty…
smart and innovative, building success upon success…
quirky and bizarre, so funny they make me giggle-snort…
wise and comforting as a loving older sister

I read your words,
painting pictures real enough to be touched…
nurturing empowerment and possibility…
summoning emotions surprising in their strength

I read your words,
thoughts, heart, and life generously shared…
drawn from depths in which I’d drown

I read your words,
And wonder why I try to write.

      I must say, I’m glad I’m not alone! Thanks for stopping by, and for your kind words. 🙂

    I could not have said it better! I just started blogging last month after pondering it for years. It’s intimidating because there is so much good writing out there. I wonder what I could possibly add to the conversation. But I write for myself ultimately so it doesn’t really matter. Thanks for this great poem. I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels this way.

      Thank you – it does help to know we’re not alone, doesn’t it?! I like your perspective, and will have to do a better job of adopting it for myself.
