There are times when I question whether or not I am truly worthy of my muse....then she takes my hand ....


 

Many have followed my trail of ink,
My long and winding path of words,
For I have left behind a detailed map!
Upon every pebble that leads the way
To my precious cache of heartfelt thoughts
There is a distinctive mark.
Although it was never my choice
To carve my initials in the sands of time,
From the gentlest nudge of my muse,
To her most persistent shove,
I have followed my heart.
My emotional journey is an open book!
The mighty quill has prevailed
Through joy and sadness, hope and despair,
Every peak I have scaled, and every valley
Where I have laid my head
Against Mother Nature’s gentle breast.
My muse never abandons me,
I have always felt her presence.
She embraces my soul,
And I never struggle to resist her.
For she whispers words of encouragement,
She comforts when I am lost,
She lifts me from dark places,
She creates laughter from tears!
She believes in me!
But sometimes I wonder,
Am I worthy of my muse?

EXPRESSED WELL...IT IS EVIDENT THROUGH YOUR WORK THAT THERE IS A WONDERFUL 'GIFT' WITHIN YOU THAT I DO ENJOY AND IN ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION...NO, I DON'T FEEL THAT ANY POET IS TRUL WORTHY OF THEIR MUSE...THAT'S BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT THEIR INSPIRER/MUSE IS GOD. THANKS FOR SHARING, LOVE AND BLESSINGS, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Never question your ability, or be modest about your talent. You ARE a gifted writer, little sister. You inspire me every day.
Love you,
Maggie

Yes you most certainly are. And you are lucky. I have to answer to a half dozen muses and not only are they all crazy, they all want to be the boss. Patrick

Annabel, there is something in us writers that says, "write!" At times the urge, the need to say something that others see, to say something that lays our minds... and souls open for others to see and, hopefully enjoy or learn from. I do not consider myself as having a "muse". And until the need to write is truly within my mind and soul, I cannot write and, when I try without a true need it shows. So, good writing here, my friend. Coming from the need within your soul, very good writing here.
Mark

"I have followed my heart"

I think if any of us can say that, we've done good.
