30 Days Of Jaye: Credence

to have the gift

of words, and being able

to craft and seduce language on

and in all of its rhythms is awe-inspiring

to have and possess such wisdom

through this gift is humbling

yet I have not taken full advantage

of what may be written before me

Its almost as someone else may have written it….but they didn’t. They can’t.

I have taken it upon

myself to write and absorb

all that is there upon written pages

taking in the knowledge that is

there and available

the wisdom is there.
