What Keeps Me Going

When life’s obstacles
put my back against the wall,
what keeps me going…
my family
When challenges arise
and I have nowhere to turn,
what keeps me going…
my friends,
When darkness overcomes me
and there’s no hope in sight,
what keeps me going…
my faith
When the road is long and hard
and I feel like quitting,
what keeps me going…
my confidence
Living every day
is another opportunity
for me
to go for everything
I want and dream of
So never give up
When life brings you down
ask yourself,
“What keeps you going?”

Our Prose

Our stories, our poetry,
our quotes, our haikus,
our sonnets, our songs,
our memoirs, our blogs…

the prose we choose
are the crumbs
we as writers
sprinkle all over the world
for hungry minds
to help gather
inspiration
and
perspectives
into the betterment
of their well-being

Be Who You Are

Your words may
not be the most
eloquent,
emotional,
humorous,
thought-provoking,
informative,
or
inspirational
but that does not mean
you should give up writing
The fact that you’re
making an attempt
to share yourself
despite being judged
makes you a devoted
artist to your craft
with the heart and spirit
of a true writer
So lift someone up
with your words
and
make it stand the test of time

Every Word Counts

If you want to make people smile,
make every word count
If you want to make people laugh,
make every word count
If you want to entertain people,
make every word count
If you want to inspire others,
make every word count
If you want to make a difference in people’s lives,
make every word count
So be creative,
be daring,
set your soul free
Be the kind of writer
you dreamed of
and
make every word count

To Share Your Words

When you are writing
and the words
flow through you
You’re on a higher plane,
you have clarity of purpose
You strive
to get your message
out into the world
To touch the untapped minds
of those
who are ready to see
the true beauty
of the written word
and make known
the meaning,
the elegance,
the exquisite
craft of prose
