Poem: Fear of the truth

Updated on June 8, 2011


I need a little help,

A push in the direction

I chose

This life of creativity, passion,

Love

Sometimes to hard to live this way

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

frustrated

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

      "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.
