Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
I write because I must.

I make my point!

by Wendy Aune

I write to bare my soul
not always meeting the goal intended
I've pretended before to be someone I'm not
Empathy was the feeling I sought!

Why seek empathy to bare you soul?
Why not be egotistical in your goal?
Look for ways to have YOUR say
Let others find their own way.

I've been lost before out there
wishing I had someone to share
my thoughts with
my heart with
my soul with
wanting to feel what others feel
wanting a love that is really real!

Why seek love that's real?
Why not live in the day?
It's so much easier that way.
You can be whole
not settling for fractions
You can find peace within
self-settled reactions.

I write to find MY peace
but if perchance my emotions release
to include a new love or a friend
my goal met its intended end
I've written to bare my soul!

And this writing-does time allow it
when you've let all life barge in?
If it doesn't you should not abide it
because THEN, you surely can't win.

I write to broaden my life,
don't you see
if only moments each day
I write to vicariously explore what's out there
People don't get in the way
I write to release pent up feelings
I write to say things boxed inside
I write and if others enjoy it
then I'll take them along for the ride!!!!!!!
