The Bell Tower

Haven’t I
been trying this whole time?

Haven’t I been jotting?
Haven’t I been penning?
Haven’t I been honing?
Haven’t I been practicing?
Haven’t I been working?

Haven’t I been scribbling feverishly,
day in and day out,
putting thoughts down in words
down in paragraphs
down in pages
down in places
just to see if they stick?

Don’t I deserve
to see my experiences
enshrined on the page?

Live, wonder, think, write,
the process ad infinitum;
only this time,
my words reached someone,
and if they resonate even further,
I am
forever grateful.
