Inspiration Wall: Recklessly She Declared Truth

Thank you Davy D  for this morning’s inspiration

recklessly she looked deeply inside

saw fire and ice in her heart

smelled iron and cooper in her blood

felt moon and ocean tides tug her soul

knew the hum of words

crawling under skin

burning to escape

knew herself a poet

the short shortsightedness of self-declared authorities

who believed themselves arbitrators anointed from above

be damned

she knew they did not have the wisdom

the clarity

the passion

to judge

all that she was

truth would be hers alone to reveal

  1. Christine, this is a wonderful response to the question and one filled with the true heart and passion that only someone who writes poetry could experience. I hope those that judge take the time to read this. Thank you.
