Why I Blog

These words come to me
Come to life so freely.

More time to think, sort my thoughts
In person I shrink, at a loss.

My heart talks, it says it's peace
A regular, calm and easy release.

Speak to no one, speak to all
But invisible if I fall.

Worth the time I plant the seed
then satisfy an inner need.

    Hey Jen, love the poem. It sounds just like me!!
    And guess what, I tagged you on my blog! Argh. I don't usually participate in these posts, but what he heck. It ended up being a great topic starter at my dinner table last night. If you choose to play along, stop by my site and see what it entails. You have to write about how "weird" you are. :) See ya soon,

    I think I must be hormonal because today is one of those days that I ask myself 'Why am I doing this?'.
