My desire to create keeps my feet moving
When all I want is to lay down and die
Passion still leaks out
While being beaten with people’s lies
Time has given me some clarity
More questions
Also a deeper appreciation to share and be with others who enjoy and value my gifts
My treasures
Those who can handle my mistakes and shortcomings
Precious are those moments
When the ship is aground from the outgoing tide
Nothing to do but to share a view and conversation with a friend
I miss those moments the most
