    One Voice

    When I got up this morning
    I said that I would not write
    Perhaps I dreamed the thought
    Sometime during the night

    My challenged mind could not choose
    For write I do...and write I will
    It's just so inborn in me...
    My mind just cannot stay still

    So bare with me once again
    As muse puts this rhyme on page
    Not knowing what I'll write
    And, of course, I have no 'phrase'

    When I awoke this morning
    As eyes caressed the day
    Something deep within my thoughts
    Something's different..oh yes, I say

    That dreaded 'C' word comes to mind
    I tell the Devil to go home...
    I don't need him hanging around
    I'd rather handle this alone

    Of course, I just Devil
    For God is with me constantly
    As are you, my family/friends
    Who, despite all, still love me

    I'm thinking this will be just fine
    Let's get this show on the road
    Best to get it over soon
    Release this very heavy load

    Nothing set up yet..but am sure
    Before this day comes to an end
    I will be hearing something
    And the 'journey' will begin

    Thank you for the love outpoured
    Thank you for reading me again
    I'm praying where I'm headed now
    Cause I know just where I've been...

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
