May I Stand Up ! and Take a Bow

First of all I will introduce myself

I am young in heart
Hunger in my soul
Free in spirit
Lost in my mind ????
Old in my body

And still have a Love to Write

My thoughts open so fast as if they were carried by the wind

Here ,There,

Fast ,Slow ,

Come, and Go

See I told you I am lost in my mind

Oh how I wish I had a built-in recorder

for when thoughts open like this

For my mind wakes fast

but my body and hand move slowly

Trying to remember all

WRITE ,WRITE DON'T MISS A WORD !

As my inner thoughts scream

Some as roaring thunder

Some softly as the morning breeze

My inner thoughts scream again and again

As if they needed a place to feel like they belong

Do they ?

I wonder sometimes....

Then these thoughts come to me again

I am young in heart
Hunger in my soul
Free in spirit
Lost in my mind ????
Old in my body

And still have a Love to Write

About ...................

Encouragement, love, honor, happiness,

and my soul's deepest secrets

And yes also

the despair, hate, sadness, dishonor,

and much more

As if the feelings were waves splashing

some softly, or as for some a raging storm

no direction and with a undertow , that won't let go

WRITE , WRITE , DON'T MISS A WORD !

For without feelings I would not know what life is all about

Searching for words to explain , Why must I ?

JUST WRITE , WRITE, DON'T MISS A WORD !

Is this right ????

Yes -----No----Maybe !
May i ask .... ?

Walk on my path
I have tipped and wavered but I have not fallen off

NO ! I will not take a Bow .... Not Now !

You see I have lost everything

Family ,house ,autos ,and friends too.

Everything! I say Everything !

At least it feels like it

Some have passed on and some chose not to walk by my side
This path is hard and lonely at times.....

My only questions are

Where, when , and why did it start ?
And when will it stop ?

No ! I will not take Bow ........Now
NO PRIDE at all in here .

All I can say is this ........

All I have left

I am young in heart
Hunger in my soul
Free in spirit
Old in my body
And still have a Love to Write

So ...................................

Now May I Stand Up and Take a Bow ? ...........NOW !

      you have a very good talent in writing.

      once you're thinking of anything, you can easily write a poem about it because for me, poem came from our feelings.

      a very good job and more poems to read from you!
