Message from Writer

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."
"Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope."
"You may write me down in history with your bitter, twisted lines. You may trod me in the very dirt, but still, like dust, I'll rise."
-Maya Angelou

Wisdom.
I once had a teacher who told me
Wisdom comes from someone old
But what is wisdom?

What if wisdom is knowing
Who you are and being it?
And if so than why
Are children not considered wise?

I remember only one time in my life
When I was me, unabashed and unashamed
I was eight at the time
And I knew who I was
Without words.

What if wisdom is knowledge?
And if so why are waves not considered wise?
Water has memory, you know,
Of past and seeking truths.

I remember once when I
Stared out at the sea
And wondered
Why it looked like eternity.

What of wisdom is understanding
The joy of flight?
And if so why is the bird not considered wise?
See, there they are,
Swooping wildly through the skies.

I remember once
I looked up
And saw clouds and a hawk a-circling,
And when they left the sky felt
Empty.
