It’s so easy to lose
our true selves
or to be carried along
by the flow of another’s
rhetoric because we
no longer possess
(or never had)
that inner conviction
that makes us different.
That’s why we must link
a chain of bridged
and ferried islands in
our otherwise loneliness.

    • So many casual comments escape us because we do not recognize them for what they are. Half of good writing lies in the recognition of writing when we actually create it. The more we write, the more we create, and the more we erase … because we recognize the weak stuff and know it doesn’t have the quality we’re looking for.
