I've been writing poetry from the age of 12. It has, and always will be my outlet, my voice. Join me on my journey . . . I can write about almost anything. :) ~ Life doesn't come with a shiny new book; no users manual of answers to find with one look. Life comes with doors that open and shut; and paths laid before us to be followed or passed up. There's things we can learn and things we may teach; hearts that may find us and souls we may reach. Guaranteed on this journey are teacups of tears; and pains that might hurt us may age us by years. But the beauty of life, love, laughter and giving; come from serving hugs on a platter each and every day we're living. ~

"Be a Voice"

The nature of living can make us nuts;
they say crazy's become the new black.
The truth is you're not alone,
share your story and where you're at.

The trials and tribulations of life
can sometimes leave us quite numb.
When we're feeling alone and overwhelmed,
it truly helps to have someone.

Being a voice and having a voice,
stopping to listen as well;
sharing the struggles you've been through
and the ways that you prevail.

Having the courage to speak;
communication is the key.
When we educate with our story,
it starts to set our pain free.

To empathize with our own words
and give unconditional love;
we become such an inspiration,
like a beautiful soaring white dove.

Inspired by these twitter prompts:
---"Be a voice - have a voice"
---"When we communicate we educate"
---"Unconditional support & inspiration"
---"Courage to speak up"
