Beginning

Begin

Open a door to what

May or may not be

Step out

Step hard

Hitting the ground

With purpose

Setting each foot

Firmly

Don’t hesitate

Become

Adapt

Learn

Teach

Tell your story

The way you want to

Scream it

Whisper

Sing

Let your voice come

From deep inside

Your soul crying to

Begin

 

 

Okay, possibly it was because I was reading Poemcrazy, but I flipped open to a section on writing about loaded words. I’ve read this part a couple of times but was never able to get anywhere.  Last night one word in the exercise, ‘begin’, started me thinking and this little free form thing came out.  I’m not sure it will make sense to anyone else, but I like it.
