Do I Write?

Do I write for me


do I write for thee?

Do I write for me

from my questing yearning

heart center of gravity?

Do I write for thee,

framing my growth,

my visions, in ways

you are most likely to accept?

Do I live for me


do I live for thee?

Do I live for me?

Dedicating time/hours/day

to my creativity

to the flow from my heart?

Or do I live for thee?

Behaving, always doing more

for others,

ever needing to help.

Do I create for me


do I create for thee?

Do I create poems for me

from my excited wounded

light filled and shadowed

heart center of gravity?

Or do I create poetry for thee?

Writing to teach others,

to show the way,

to reach the most people?

In duality

the choice is either/or.

In unity the choice

is where the abacas bead

is on the string

between the two.

Guided from the
point of the triangle,

above yet within.

I write for both.

But I write for me

My very first poem that ended up

somewhere different than my

mind thought it would.
