Five-Minute Friday: Write

I am linking up with Lisa-Jo Baker for today's Five Minute Friday.

Today's FMF: Write

The words that I write
Flow like water
From my mind
To my hands
Onto paper
Writing helps me
Express what
My voice cannot
It helps me
Put the pieces together
Of this puzzle called life
It helps me
Makes sense
Of my emotions
And thoughts
I write
To get away
From reality
For a while
And to remember
The joys of life
Writing is
One of the gifts
I was given
And one
That I give
To others in return
Writing helps me
To calm my mind
To help me
Get some peace of mind
Writing helps me
To be myself
In a world
Striving to be
Of what they are not
All this is worth writing for


  1. "To be myself in a world striving to be copies of what they are not" -- what a brave and powerful thing to do. I'm so thankful that writing can help us to be honest and authentic. Thank you for sharing this thoughtful post, Diane.
