The written word is a powerful thing. When I put pen to page I feel sweet solace and find respite from the world around me. I can dream with words and go on grand adventures. I can paint pictures with words and create new worlds. I can relive the past and imagine the future. I cannot fathom a life without verse and chapter. Every word that I write is a beat of my heart and as long as someone, someday glances upon them, I will live forever.
