Amy Barlow Liberatore… stories of lost years, wild times, mental variety, faith, and lots of jazz

When prompts are posted, it’s common for me to miss the deadline. I still post these to my blog anyway, because that’s part of the work of the poet. Sort of like a rejection letter, and I respond to those surprisingly well considering my condition.

Anyway, Trifecta had called for “why we write” in exactly 33 words. I humbly offer this, better late than never! It will also be at my resting place, that little slice of blog heaven known as Poets United.  Peace, Amy

Because I Can

My ears are seashells
My eyes see past the world
My brain harbors memories…

So much conquered, understood
I write so I can tell the misunderstood,
“It’ll be okay, I’ve been there, too.”
