Poem: Fear of the truth

I need a little help,

A push in the direction

I chose

This life of creativity, passion,


Sometimes to hard to live this way

At the edge of my seat, barely living on ends meat


My only enemy is me, my way of thinking

What if I do succeed?

What’s wrong with that?

The fear of this honesty rushes in,

I am afraid, that’s the truth.

I push myself to move forward,

Just pick up the damn pen and write!

Filling up the page with my soul

my hand glides quickly across the page

so much pouring out, I cry with fear

and joy

This is all I want, all I ever wanted, the way to live, to be

the creativity flows

    Trust and faith are part of your creative life and persistence helps as well. Creativity wants to work through you and at some point you have to step a side to let imagination take over.

  • Writing Whenever & Wherever

    Writing is more than just putting words together to create a different world. Creativity is a way of life - sometimes you have to step out of the and let creativity take over.

  • Fog

                    Fog Further into the slide of doom my thoughts linger with the fog of the morning tide - I think I made you up as I shut my eyes and let the flashes of light dance freely....

"This above all - to thy own self be true." I use this quote from Hamlet as a reminder that a writer must first be true to himself (or herself) and write from the heart. The rest will follow. I enjoyed the honesty in this hub. I look forward to reading more of your work.
