To tell my truth

October 21, 2020

PROMPT: Why I Write

I write to tell my truth, 
the tiny voice whose inconquerable murmur 
swirls within the ice-cold waves of my brain
and the firey abysses of my heart.

I write to scream in pain, 
With my one assurance, my one plea, my one word
the last leaf that falls each autumn
and the first rose of spring's cherry blossoms

I write to laugh and leap and sing and dance, 
to let the golden sunbeams of the glittering sunset sprinkle me with
warmth, light, and happiness
And fill my trembling hands 
with sparkling flecks of sunlight

I write to breathe 
To breathe in the ever-turning, ever-changing, technicolor horizon
and taste the colors of the chilly wind on my tongue
And smell the traces of magic hidden beneath the star-sprinkled universe

I write to breathe
I write to laugh and leap and sing and dance
I write to scream in pain
I write to tell my truth.
