Favorite Quote:
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."

If a picture
Is worth a thousand words
Then a thousand thoughts
Buy a song.

They churn in my mind:

Floating through my head
And becoming something more.

Their weight pulls at them
And they come tumbling
Out my ears
Sprouting wings as they hit the air
And transforming into notes
That sing
As they let the breeze carry them

To higher places.

The soprano ones are lighter

And they dance
With the heavier ones
Velvety and sorrowful
Before drifting away toward the sun.

Beautiful choreography.

It tells a story
Written in black dots
Like braille for the soundproof ear.

And I am the author

Sewing the song I choose

Then giving it to the wind
To see where it leads me.

And no one else can follow
Because I run along a staff
That is for my eyes alone.

And it doesn’t matter

That you don’t understand it

Because the notes you try to add
Don’t harmonize
So there is no place for them

In my song.

You can judge it
But you’ll never change it

Because you can’t
Hear it.

This is my life

And here is my song

And my mind
Will never stop singing.

The author's comments:
I could sit here at my key board and explain every detail of this poem in this little box that I have to type in, but honestly, it's too simple for that. Sometimes one simple little thought appears out of the blue, and all of a sudden a million words just start bubbling up in my brain, and I have to get them out. And then a poem happens, or a song. And maybe it's a little raw, or a little rough around the edges, but it's pure and uncomplicated, and it's just me. And no one can ever take those thoughts away from me. This poem is an expression of that. Interpret it how you choose, but just make sure to use your imagination.
