I am woman and writer
I wonder if I will stop accepting second best
I hear impish devils whispering in my ear
I see my dream mate in a vision
I want to know about the end
I am woman and writer

I pretend that all is okay
I feel clouds brushing my face
I touch the wind as it caresses me
I cry over things that might happen
I am woman and writer

I understand how people feel
I say to them things to help their hurts
I dream about things that come true
I try to exercise every day
I hope for my books to be published
I am woman and writer

Seems that we, like many here, share the same dream of being published.  

Thank you for answering the challenge...just a way to get to know everyone a bit better, and you did a marvelous job.

Teresa,
You just keep writing the way you are and one day you will be published, I have no doubt about that. Keep your head up and reaching for your dreams.

All my love,
Jeffrey

--------------
I know it's been a long road
To get these towns behind me and I
Will gladly reap what we may sow--
I am there for you ...
and you're there for me ...
Are you waiting for
Heart in hand
Woman and man
See me where I stand I am
Heart
Heart in hand
~vertical horizon~
