   THE PATH I  TAKE.

I’d go out there to get a sheet
I’d allow my pen dance on it

suited words together I’d knit

reconstructing lines till it fit
They yell “what say you ’bout pen?”

Those foolish things put far from you!

Wealth and power covet thou to earn

Before your time on earth is due.
The path I take indeed is dark

But my companion here is light

“Dont go” they call as I embark

But I need go for I must write.
My companion remains my pen

With it on my hand I’m fearless

For this poetic path I yearn

It I’d take: I’m a poetess
