I don’t know about you poets…but you’ve inspired me to do things I’ve never dreamed…like posting a recording of my poem! The nerves are evident, this is a first, afterall. The song that inspired this piece, (yes…soundbites included!) is amazing! You can find it in my blog play list if you’d like to see how it really should be sung. 😉 So…not wanting to taint the OpenLinkNight festivities when another is hosting, I’m biting the bullet and going for it, knowing it will all fall on me if it sucks more than I think it does!
Welcome to the pub Poets! Hope you enjoy!
A Woman’s Way
When I was young I thought me free
burdened only by opportunity.
But all too soon it slipped by me,
now through my choices I’m forced to be
a woman blessed with health and home,
a family to call my own
a piece of land that I may roam
a community where I am known.
But still those open spaces sing
of freedom and other such silly things
I must be careful, for my wishes may bring
answered prayers, that only sting.
