They call me mad.
They say i have no right
to toss words like salads--
garnished with seasonings
of tears and emotion,
sprinkled with perfect rhyme
and a dash of meter
to bring out the flavor--
And they call me drunk.
They sadly shake their heads
as they watch me stumble--
tripping over dangling
part i ci ples and my pen,
slipping in ink puddles
left from yesterday's pain
'til i'm soaked to the skin--
They say i'm naive.
They say my dreams and hopes
should not be placed in words--
but words are an escape
words allow me to fly
to new heights of wonder
i discover myself
rising above it all--
and i am not afraid.
