Good, Then I Am A Writer

Good, Then I Am A Writer

A Poem by Jenny Davis
"

I wrote this because as a writer, any reaction is better than none.

"

Do the lines I write sometimes
make you shudder
as the winds of truth
blow your reflection
into fragments;


Pieces of your inner workings
exposed
forcing you to look at yourself
in the light of day?


Do my thoughts threaten
your reality
rocking your very core
into realms since
unrecognized;


Like a built-in light
inside
your compact mirror, magnifying
blemishes on your world?


Good, then I am a writer.

I got to hear you read this live so that makes it even better. I can still hear your voice saying the words. I think this hold so much truth and wisdom in it that it speaks a truth all it's own that no one can deny. You are a bad a*s writer and I will tell that to anyone that dares to ask. Kept up the great work.


Well Done!!!!!!

the challenge and response is what relfective poetry is all about
yeah
although i think language and originality are a big part too

i guess if the message isn't conveyed
or it's been done before
then the challenge isn't there

so i kind of contradicted myself

worst review ever?
maybe.
sorry.

this is a good write: sharp, honing in on its point and not straying
nice work

Jenny I loved this. Your words are challenging and speak so much truth. I agree with Lorriane "ideally expresses the power of the pen..."mightier than the sword." You captured this brilliantly. A shock to the reader when he/she sees himself/herself through others eyes. Gives a whole new perspective to the person, yet that person as you so well put it may shudder as they are forced to look within. I have missed you!

Well, if Robert says you're a "bad a*s" writer, that puts me on the same side with him. I think your work is excellent. I hate that I missed your reading of this piece (lucky Robert) anyways, this was a wonderful look at writing and how writing can and should effect us. You are a writer then. Great writing!
