when I opened my eyes
this morning
there was something
different in the air
like something unseen
had happened
while I slept
like the world was a kinder
gentler place
like I knew it was ok
to be me
Iím not a freak
for coming to the page
Iím not a strange alien being
for wanting to write it all down
and all of a sudden I could breath
and what a wonder
that is
itís ok to be me
itís ok to live in this skin
itís really allfuckingright
I am free
it isnít something shameful
it isnít something obscene
I write for crying out loud
I may write mediocre
I may write badly
but praise be
I write
and write I will
right or wrong
good or bad
if I could just find someone
to give me money for itÖÖÖÖ
Iíll take accolades

I applaud you new freedom. You do not write badly. I enjoy reading your work. I have not been online much due to an injury but I read your work when I can. I always am glad I did.

Hi Jo,
I applaud your new found freedom, and validate it. Your putting it out there with such authentic grace benefits us all. Love your poetry. Love yourself through your poetry. Let it teach you how to show the world you have a gift to give. As you come to believe the value in it IS--the abundance
will be attracted to you regardless of the practical source. Someone may pay you for publication--or it may come from somewhere completely unexpected. The key is believe in it. --From my journey to yours-- Vicky
