True to Self

Ah! But what would I do
If I were not true
To myself?


Poems would not flow
Places, I’d care not to go
Withdrawn—space pulled in
Acting alone—feeling no friend
Creating stifled
Production less than a trifle


Ah but what if I spotted it!
I’d jump on it
And start to spit
Ideas and thoughts would flow
And into new creating I’d go!



I wrote this after seeing how insidious suppression of an artist can be.
I'd been suppressed.
Unknowingly! I had stopped writing, stopped creating!

Well I'm back!
