down a heart
for others who never see their worth.
It's a lonely road
for my inky fingers.
I write daily
of things that inspire me-
Not to make a difference
or impress the endless people
who care to read
but to simply live-
as a writer my need
to put thoughts down
is my way of
coping with this life
I will never underestimate
the power of poetry
and lyrical lines of
This is me and my words
thank you for reading.
This is a topic of conversation I have been having with both of these people, they both inspire me....
Ben has inspired me to not be afraid of stretching my limits within rhyme... and Kireasha has inspired me to embrace my darkness and has taught me to not be afraid to talk about my past... I have been able to write, but this courageous woman has shown me, its ok to talk about it as well!
as others have in the past, upon my journey as a writer... thank you!
I am blown away by your imagery.
"Nothing drips faster than loneliness down a heart of endless compassion"
What a powerful emotional beautiful opening which really sets the mood
For those who lack confidence to know how worthy they are. The lonely road for a writer depicted so visually by inky fingers was
The inner strength that writes only what inspires you not to impress the endless stream of people who read but do not comment or show themselves
Your overwhelming need as a writer to put your needs down on paper as a way of coping with your life. This I can relate to being too ill myself to do a lot of things.
Writing is my purpose it gives meaning to my life.
The stanza about not underestimating the power of poetry and lyrical lines of emotion.
How true is this. Poetry has the means to pull our emotions in all directions to boost a spirit, to make us sad and to make us laugh, to teach us and to share our inner selves and thoughts.
Your words are so beautiful and capture so much imagery. I don't think you do realise your wonderful talent. I love reading your poetry you are so in talented and in touch with yourself and nature much more than you know.
A lovely poem and tribute to Ben and Kireasha and a bright torch for us all in the darkness.

It brings me great joy to know that I have inspired you. You are a beautiful and courageous writer; your talent speaks for itself. I've discovered as a new writer you always remember to write from the heart and let the words flow on paper. I believe you've mastered this skill. I have so much respect and admiration for you, if it wasn't for your encouragement I probably would have never joined this site. Thank you for taking the time out to write this piece for me and Ben. I feel privileged to know you because your so special to me and you inspired me to be a better person. :-)
