#1 NaPoWriMo — Breaking Silence

Posted: April 2, 2016 in Uncategorized

breaking silence 1

Sometimes the roar is so deafening
As silence descends
A heartbreaking proclaimation
Heard all to often within
Inching closer
My ink
My words
Begin to break free from
Passages of time
Yearning to scream to the masses
You see
I admit the voice swirling in my mind is
A means to an end
It is time for me to
Reclaim my lyrical chains
By breaking silence

~Marsha Nelson

[It is indeed a fact that my creative juices have been stifled for a very long time now. It’s time for me to make a positive change and get back in the swing, pen ready, and make my writing happen again!]

    I am so looking forward to sharing this month with you. It’s been way too long, kiddo. Your words are honest, filled with truth, and an eagerness to repossess what has always been truly you. The prompts are proving to be something similar for me as well. Hope you’ve got your seatbelt on, this may prove to be a hell of a ride. Thanks so much,


  2. Thank you, Elizabeth! I have my seat belt strapped on and see I’m going to need it! I appreciate you so much! ~Marsha
