My verse, you say?

 I have not a clue.

My words are my life.

My thoughts a singing stream, a babbling brook and a raging river.

I wear many faces.

Fierce Female but not a Fatale. 

Passionate Protector of my Progeny.  

Irenic but Fearless in the Face of Falsehoods and Fallacies. 

Vivacious, Vigorous Vibrant Vamp.

Physically Fit Phoenix Fertile in Mind, Body and Spirit.

My Work on this Earth has yet to be Complete.

My next Calling is in the Making.

I Sense a Worthy Cause.

But I Know One Thing:

Who I Am Makes a Difference

NOW

#FWF Free Write Friday: O me! O life!

The following is the speech, and it is your FWF prompt. What will your verse be?

“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here – that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?” — John Keating (Robin Williams) Dead Poets Society

    I am Me. So true and good to know that we are ourselves and are just fine and special by being that. Sometimes in life, l tried to “Fit” into some “Conventional gloves”, and oh what a mess of my life l made? Now, l moving past that, facing it right on and above all, I AM ME!

      1. I never thought of it that way but now that you mention it, it does open the mind to work with something that someone has set out for you to work with. I do find that it also exercises the mind.

  3. I relate to the line “I wear many faces”. You grabbed hold of me with your words. We are complex, ever changing, human beings (especially us gals) and our verse is a roaring yawp upon the world! 😉
    Lovely!

  4. “Irenic but Fearless in the Face of Falsehoods and Fallacies:” this line gave me a teary smile. My grad school supervisor who died suddenly almost 20 years ago used this word frequently, and would have liked your use of it. I’ve been thinking of him a lot lately, so it felt very right to read irenic in your verse.
    I would have given you high marks for strength and power in the poem anyway.

    1. I am glad the line brought back a memory of a beloved person for you. I wanted something more accurate to describe this part of myself, I suppose. I love it when people not only like the power in my words but when it touches their souls too. 🙂
