Quantity and Quality

Raised in a battlefield
quantity doled out
in abuse, quality
not yet defined

Now I write myself
out of the darkness
each chapter
an uphill climb

Page by page
no shortage of words
value between lines.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Expressing one’s self through poetry sure is cathartic, as I have discovered personally as well. Great write!
