Page Poetry

Last spring I came across something I heard of as Page Poetry. I thought it was a highly wonderful thing to do and most people end up with beautiful results. I wanted to try it, but couldn’t bring myself to do what needed to be done in order to accomplish this. So I only admired others’ work.

Back For Me

I took a walk today,

In the cold January air.

It felt good to move again,

away from all doubts.

The pounding

of                 my          heart

matching

the     steps   of    my    feet.

All the while I spent

clearing my cluttered mind

and then,

at the mile I found

your voice back for me

again.

Your Road

 

Your Road   1.26.11

Nothing is ever as bad as it seems,

just push forward and follow your dreams.

 

Carry your load with pride and grace,

never undermine your rightful place.

 

Don’t let anybody knock you down,

stick to what’s right and truth will be found.

 

Hold your head high with brilliant courage,

before you know it your life will flourish.
