The Essence of Transformation.
Thanks dollarphotoclub.

Cocooned in my relative safety

Accustomed to the limitations

Urges to leave, clawing hastily

Struggling and pain initiation


Distress attacking from everywhere

Pushing me to clamor towards light

Will I survive this; should I be aware

Follow my intuition and I will be alright


The struggle was itself carrying me home

Without the consistent effort I would die

Pain disappeared like the sea’s foam

Free now to stretch and to fly.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
