Three new books and a lamp to light their pages

Each one important for life’s next stages

To let me release my words from their cages

Helping to find a voice in-between silence and rages

Writing something without my truth seems wrong

One of my favorite childhood memories involved thinking up songs

Silly ones about Pac-Man and Donkey Kong

Optimistic ones about how someday I would be strong

I’ve drifted since then but I’d like to try it again

Finally feeling like my hearts on the mend

Could I be one of the shiny happy people with a positive message to send?

I grew up a Doors fan but I know this isn’t the end.

I too will one day face the crowd

Turn off all the voices even though they’re pretty loud

Stop riding the same mental storm cloud

Ego resting in balance between worthlessness and proud
