hard not to fall into cliche

what we know where we come from

what we know and believe

not so easy to know  truth or tell it

so many secrets to living some of them

we never know how to say we might never

write the sentence we’ve wanted for years

what would those words be

might never understand

where we came from

ancestors villages there to here

a lifetime looking for words

to say what we can never know



Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
