The Gift To Write
You don’t know where it comes from. It’s like a little voice whispering the words for you to write.
It wakes you up out of your sleep and gets you out of the bed in the middle of the night.
It’s something that you must do.
It’s a drive that pulls you.
No matter where you are, no matter what you are doing.
It’s something that you are always pursuing.
It runs through you like the blood that flows through your veins.
It comes out of your fingertips like water when it rains.
You were blessed with a gift. A gift to capture an emotion with a word.
To put them to together on paper so they can be heard.
I embrace my gift with all of my might.
And may the Lord continue to bless us with the gift to write.
