Momma uttered the word “poetess”
And I was deeply sunk,
All in.
Carried away by rhyming words.
Morphed into mamma’s little word nerd.
But momma didn’t tell me about the pain.
The rejection.
The real brain strain.
The study.
The cold nights writing with one buddy,
The people looking like I’m real nutty.
Momma didn’t tell me about the pain,
About the long nights listening to God’s rain
Pounding out a verse or two or three,
But poetry sets my soul Scott free
To be authentically and completely , imperfectly me.

I hope it’s not his fate or your fate Monday. I didn’t marry until gray headed and sixty three. Where there is life and love, there is Hope from God up above.????
