From The Pen Within

From The Pen Within

written by: Jill Sharon Kimmelman

 

Write from your soul
write because you don’t know how not to
write to nourish your spirit

Write when you soar with unparalleled elation and
when you are engulfed by a sadness so deep…there are no tears

Write for the freedom it promises and
when writing is the only way to scale the walls of your prison

Write about truths
pay no attention to rhyme schemes…line-breaks…genres…
word games…prompts…and syllable counts

Write from sun-up-to-sun-down and-
deep into another dark espresso night

Write because you must…when the choice to not write
will be the certain death of your spirit
