A Writer’s Psalm

In the days ahead I will be sharing some thoughts on developing a writing life which will include and emphasize the benefits of belonging to a Writer’s Group, the power of the pen (over the keyboard), why you want to be a journal keeper, writing out of your comfort zone and many more fun, informative and inspiring posts. There might be a few guests popping by offering their own words. AND I will be giving away one copy of the anthology I am included in from this year.

Meanwhile, I offer you…

A Writer’s Psalm

I may be just one

But when the day is done

I will pour out my soul

Counting not the toll

‘Tis the choice I make

To live life awake

Not as one asleep

Nor my words to keep

I set them free

Chasing liberty

Many paths I’ve gone

Cut through darkest dawn

Bleeding words like wine

Knowing they’re not mine

But a bigger plan

than the hand of man

is this writer’s fate

Through they Master’s gate

Taking pen as sword

seeking not reward

but instead to heal

comfort and reveal

trusting what I do not see

knowing it’s reality.
