A Writer's Journey Starts Off the Path
One small step seems
Minuscule to the entire journey,
But without the first step
There is no journey.
The first stroke of the pen
The feeling of the first key tapping on the keyboard
Both inspiring untold potential
And an initial spark of energy.
This feeling has an essence
Of innocence and excitement
A childlike trust and fearlessness
Ready to conquer the journey.
At that moment there are
Only dreams of stories to
Be lived and to be told
There is only a beautiful view of the horizon.
There may be challenges
Hidden in the brush
Or fears in the heart that
Are awaiting to be seen.
The journey and the destination
Failure and change of direction
The tools and weapons needed
The writer does not care
The only concern is seeing new experiences
And new stories through the eyes of amazement
Like a child first seeing the world.
A writer searches with no
Destination in mind
Souring from a cliff
Into the abyss of the unknown.
