once it was easy

many years ago

it was easy

life seemed fun

writing poems was easy


now many years passed

i am self-conscious

of each word i write

i wonder if the reader

will understand

what i am writing


i once did not have these worries

i wrote how i felt

and now i am slow

about sharing my thoughts

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
