    Brenda Arledge has written us a lovely poem. Anything can inspire us and see how a comment on forum post inspired her to write this superb poem. Yes, it is easy to get inspired but only if we want to, I guess.
    Beautiful hub, Bredz. Thanks for sharing.

      Hello Brenda!
      This is so true and I can relate to this. I can’t imagine myself, not writing. Something or the other is always going on in my mind, which I want to write about. No doubt, the recent changes at HP demotivated most of us. But, it seems the writers aren’t going to stop, and they will keep writing.
      Thank you for sharing this.
      Thank you Misbah, for sharing Brenda’s poem.

        Yes...you definitely get it.
        Welcome to the club.

        There are a few of us who have been bitten by the creative bug.

        Our thoughts swirl....Non-stop.

        HP will not deter are writing...we will find new ways.

        I do wish Hubpages would showcase our words though, instead of the ads.

      Sorry for the delay, but you know how it is....
      Take care.

    The seems like such an appropriate poem for our new reality on Hubpages, Brenda. I agree that we can get inspired in many ways, and I will probably keep writing.

    Thanks for posting Brenda's article, Misbah. Blessings and love to my good friends.

      Thank you Brenda for such an impromptu lovely poem. I guess that is the way most writers feel. I am still having a good time writing although I may not continue it lifelong. I have other dreams to pursue. Thank you so much for expressing your feelings about writing and thanks to Misbah for sharing this post.

        Thank you.
        We all have other goals in life.
        Writing will be with me right along side of my other goals, because I don't think my thoughts will ever go away.

        I'm glad you have a good time writing and I look forward to reading more of your words.

        Take care

      I appreciate your sweet words about the series for the word prompts.

      As for my inspiration...it finds many ways to get jumpstarted.

    A wonderful and heartfelt poem expressing why writers "have to" write. I can totally relate, unfortunately, many people, who aren't creative writers, just can't understand. Good work, Brenda, and thank you for sharing this, Misbah.

      Thank you.
      I get the sense your creative juices are never too far away.  That your muse can go into gear at a moments notice.
      That's us...the writer's.
      The ones that Creativity has a firm grip upon.

      Others clearly do not understand and no amount of words will ever make them get it.

      It's sad they can't understand...but they don't.

      I hate it when others say something about me writing all the time...I mean, it's part of me & it's my life.

      Doubt that will disappear

    This poem is so heartfelt and real Brenda. I can relate to it. This is what we do at Hubpages, keep writing and it does keep us connected with our friends, comments or no comments.

      It's like the air we breathe.  We need those words that rattle from our thoughts to a poem or story.

    I can relate to this poem although I seldom write on HP anymore. More often on my journal.

    Thank you for sharing the poem.

      Thanks for reading this one.

      I'm glad you are at least still writing, but we can't see your words in your journal.

      But writer's....we always keep jotting down notes.

      Take care.
