Inspiration · 29 September 2000

If to be inspired
     I must suffer pain and grief
Writing nevermore a poem
     Would be a great relief
If a broken heart and sadness
     Turns my mind to verse
No more poems from my heart
     Would be a welcome curse.

But poems also come from passion
     From feelings deep and strong
To turn my heart away from these
     Would surely do me wrong.
And though I may suffer broken hearts
     And pains more than a few
I’ll know true joy and happiness
     Deep love and passion too.
