What more can a writer ask , than one decent hub.
When I came to hubpages two and a half years ago , actually searching and then stumbling onto hubs , I was at a point where I would type out these white copier pages of poetry . Hide them away in a cardboard box and go back to staring into the fire , walking into the woods or reading something that excited my imagination . For a few years I had merely been putting down my thoughts on paper and for what ? I think that it was actually my way of sorting out the expeiriences in my own life that , well to be frank , left me really confused about a lot of things , life , and the living , love , family ......and on and on .
Sometimes , I believe that we are all pretty much islands , or I should perhaps say , some men are islands . Oh , I have met and seen many, many people who experience some pretty heavy personal experiences in life and exit them completely unphazed , and like a lot of people , maybe fully one in five ! I always tended to internalize everything . Enough about me though , you know ,...... there is a presense of thought that states " We are all but the very child that was once within us " , I have read that a few times in different places . And knowing that , as well as thinking about it for years , I've come to realize that , Yes , we are !
Perhaps one of our greatest shortcomings in mankind itself , is that we tend to all believe and then act out our lives as if what we as individuals personally experience in life, is somehow unique to each of us , but alone ! Our very sense of emotional consciousness somehow tells us that our acceptance of life experiences is just ours to live and somehow resolve again alone !...... And yet , how many times have we felt that little twinge of movement in our very souls , when we do reach out to others and when we do ! We are recieved ! We are accepted ! A friend , a brother , a parent or an elder or another hubber !
So , along comes a man of solitude , pretty much an introvert , a thinker , although not the " sharpest tool in the shed " [some of you know that ] and finds a place like these "HubPages ".....A place where that small voice within , finally see's a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel , and sees one small opening in this literary world where he can have a voice , If you want to call me a poet , a writer , and I still feel uncomfortable claiming that title ! Then so be it , however , just like each of you and perhaps just because of each of you , something inside of me has awakened ! You know , I still read some of your stories , poetry and life experiences and I think , Oh my god , I am just like you and You are just like me !
And I owe that to you , my friends here . Thank you , for reading me ! Thank you for sharing me , There is nothing more fullfilling than to recieve comments like those that absolutely beautiful souls send out to others , Now is there ?..........This is just way of saying "Thank You " - for being there when I needed you !
