Poet’s Corner: Advice From The Best People I Know

Advice from the best people I know.

Is it passion or is it words

That make you sound as free as birds? Free as bloody birds.

Be inspired, creative, and let your thoughts wander

As lonely as a cloud, until you find the light through yonder

Window breaks. Like a lightning bolt of ideas,

Into your life, larger than life, beautiful, let it stroll in,

Let the words flow out of you onto the page,

Forget about rhymes, rhythm, essays, your grade.

Man hands on misery to man, don’t let this be you,

You can write anything you want to.
