The National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) is an annual challenge that happens in the month of April and asks participating poets to write a poem each day for 30 Days.


there is a fire that burns inside me,
one that I must accept and follow,
not one but me knows where it leads,
not a soul but my own the fire feeds.
doubt clouds burst over it each day,
trying to wash out what it has to say,
a flicker of a frown and it dims again,
so tell me, is this fire worth the pain?
do I let the waters douse the flame?
of a dream, a passion that once came;
for a cloud that knew not what it was,
do I let go of me now, and say alas?
for a lost path, do I continue to grieve?
or forgetting all, continue to believe?
only I must accept, and try to see,
for that fire burns only inside me.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
