My Poem “Day of the Poet”

I believe that every day of my life
has prepared me for who I am,
who I have always been,
and who I will always be...
I believe that every day of my life -
from the moment I wake up
in the early hours of the morning,
to the moment I fall asleep at night,
to the moment I set sail upon the waves
of the sea of my dreams -
I am seeing, hearing, thinking,
imagining, interpreting the poetry
all around me that will always continue
to invigorate me and inspire me...
I believe that every day when a word,
a verse, a story, or a new discovery
plants it's seed within my mind
it has been put there so that I can
see it become something even more profound
by giving it my own spark of magic...
I believe that every day when
I reflect inwards and outwards
I draw in and I echo from myself
something that was always meant to be
shared with those who need to hear
my message all around the world -
from Atlanta to Zurich...
I believe that every day when
I am writing something that
is in every way a part of me,
as well as inspired by who I have met,
what I have done, where I have been,
and when I have been struck by inspiration,
was always preordained -
which is the reason that I never ask: why?
I believe that every day
when my heart was broken,
I believe that every day
when I was blessed to see the sunrise,
I believe that every day
when I had to keep my thoughts unspoken,
I believe that every day
when I told someone I loved them
as I looked deep into their eyes -
every moment, of every hour,
of every day has always been
when it was my time for me to be me
and to shine my poetic light,
because being a poet and a writer
is the daily destiny of my life.
