This is the title poem from INSPIRED, my first book of poetry.

(Book front cover picture 'The Blue Lady' by Tracey Jones.)



It took a lot

To get me here

I was so frightened

I lived in fear.


A little muse

He came to me

With a few choice words

I was set free.


Free to be here

Free to pursue

Free to be vibrant

And be myself with you.


As I struggled to find

My inner being

Real humble beauty emerged

The truth of me Iím finally seeing.


I feel the love

I feel the heat

Clap your hands

Stomp your feet.


We love our art

Weíre not shy, not coy

We come together

To share the joy.


I heard the words

I felt the need

Tonight we were blessed

Godís children destined for success.


A prayer answered

Not a word went unheard

To all the other haters

Iíll flip just you the bird.


Tonight I heard things that inspired

I truly believe that I felt his touch

Compelled to write this

I thank God so much.


For all that he gives to me

I give it right back

My praise forms in words

They keep me focused and on track.



So when you see me put pen to paper

I hope you donít mind

Iím following my destiny

Iím not being rude or unkind.


Positive thinking to aiming higher

Being what God meant to me

Iím ignoring the negative

Preferring to nurture the positive, in my creativity.


Iím being inspired

Iím catching a ride

Iím just feeling the flow

Iím flowing with the vibe.


Iím listening, Iím learning

Godís seeing my soul

But itís only together

That I reach my goal.


No more back biting

No more stinging remarks

Weíve got to support each other

Itís together that weíll create sparks.


Thoughts turn to action

Like flint and wood

Creating a literary fire

Iím doing what I only dreamt I could.


Just when I feel like Iím losing the rhyme

I look around, reminisce, remember

I slow it down

I take my time.


Quick, give me a sheet

A quill and some ink

Old school I know but what I come up with

Might make you think.


I stop, I think

I write it down again

My goodness why didnít I think of that

Why when it was so plain.


I take what I feel and see

I show you through my eyes

It might take one

But more like two or three tries.


I wonít be in the crowd

Looking sad, feeling terse

Iíll be the one up on the stage you see

Giving you a taste of my verse.


Though I canít sing in tune

Or freestyle a rhyme

I hope my words however delivered

Touch you every time.


Leaving you feeling hopeful

Bringing a smile to your face

Making you feel all warm and cosy

Welcoming you into Angeeís space


Now you go out and spread the word

Help someone else aspire

I thank you for reading this

Now that Iíve shared with you, I hope youíll beÖ INSPIRED.

Your expression is of every thought that I have felt about writing poetry, and is wonderfully penned.

Thank you for the inspiration,
