"To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong" - Joseph Chilton Pearce


He sits there
Waiting-
Listening-
With his guitar in hand
And the guitar pick in the other
He sits there
Playing his life story
Strumming each and every word
He sits there
Awaiting-
The moment he can finally stop-
Stop all the pain
He sits there
Head hanging-
Hanging low
Dreads in his face
Tears coming down his cheeks
He sits there
His story
Finally told.

As I took a walk through my public library,there was a painting on the wall of a man with long locks. His eyes followed me as I walked by.This is the story he had in his eyes.
