The rest were posting new threads so I thought why not?...lol

I am an independant nurturer
I wonder why people can be so blind
I hear the trees whisper to the breeze
I see the sky kiss the earth
I want to see the world
I am an independant nurturer

I pretend to live in his arms
I feel growth in the journey
I touch the dreams of the world
I worry I am not enough
I cry for the loss of innocence
I am an independant nurturer

I understand that anything worth while is not easy
I say love is the answer
I dream of true freedom
I try to live up to my potential
I hope to see my words in print
I am an independant nurturer

Yes, Marilyn. I just posted mine too,
and edited the one in Alicat's thread,
and sent his thread back to the top so
others can do this, too.

YOURS is great  -- I enjoyed all that

This is very nicely done, Marilyn. It was an interesting challenge, wasn't it? Makes you do a little soul searching...

Again, nice job!

It was great reading this and getting to know you better. You are definitely a winner in my book. Not only are you a great poet, but sounds like a wonderful person in general and someone i am proud to call friend.

take care,
amy

Wow..I am not sure what to say in response to all of you. I am glad you enjoyed this little peek into me but I think some of you (those who already know me) already knew this much.  

This was definately a challenge to write and something that made me look deep inside myself. I know I could write many of these and still have a few extra things to say about the different aspects of me. We are all so complex but at the same time very simple.
