The Power and Freedom to Write

As the sun slowly rises 

And gently wakes me with the touch of its ray, 

My souls recognizes 

The joy and wonder that comes with this new day. 

 

Today is a blank page 

Of this chapter 

In the story 

Of my life. 

 

I rejoice that I have the power and freedom to write 

A story of love, adventure, triumph, and light. 

 

I hope to be a hero bringing what is just and right. 

To be an advocate for those who aren't able to fight. 

To be an artist bringing beauty and color. 

To be a generous giver and a genuine lover. 

 

Today is a blank page 

Of this chapter 

In the story 

Of my life. 

 

I get out of bed with a feeling of purpose and excitement. 

And with each action, the words compile in alignment. 

The sentences weave together and have begun to start. 

And paragraphs are developed on the page, like a work of art. 

 

I want not to waste a word, sentence, paragraph, or page. 

Thus I thoroughly and unreservedly engage 

In this story of love, adventure, triumph and light. 

For this is the plot I wholey endeavor to write. 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
