This is meant for everyone who's writing I've ever read.

I...Am Inspired

I want to write something.
I want ot take this wand in my hand
and make my magic.
I feel inspired.
Inspired like and artist of any kind
by another.
By a writer.
A close soul to my heart
who's art is words.
By a singer
who's voice i the pen or the brush
that lives.
By a painter.
Colors of variety and formation unmatched.
Until magic, art, or life shall end... inspired.

Wow, great poem! Very....inspirational! (can't think of another word for it   )

 "Suicides have already betrayed the body.
Still born, they don't always die,
bu dazzled, they can't forget a drug so sweet
that even children would look on and smile."
-- "Wanting to Die" by Anne Sexton

dear jeremy:
     this is a wonderful free-verse work... i can't say i'm much for critiquing free-verse since i know little about it and it really has no form or structure, but i do know what i like and what i dont... and this, i like... keep up the good work

ok, i really like the poem, and i feel the same way right now, i want to write something,but i dont no what, well, that and im very tired, i probably didnt even get the deeper meaning of most of the poem, i need SLEEP!!
anyway, i know exactily what u mean, isall i can say without the possibility that i might say something stupid in my sedated state
anyway, good poem!

 always follow your heart, never follow others unless it is truely where you want to go, and never give up a dream, maybe just set it aside for a while... :)

Being inspired is a wonderful thing that many of us take for granted. You describe it well.

I feel like that, every time I hear a good song, or see the moon, or just get that 'feeling'.

Wonderfully put.

Oh wow, GREAT poem!    I know exactly what you mean! Sometimes when I can't express what I want to say I'll find what someone else has written and it's exactly what I've been trying to get out!
Cool idea for a poem too. I'm always inspired but it never occured to me to write a poem about what inspires me. lol. It was nice of you to dedicate it to all the talented writers too. I feel the same way about so many poets and writers here at passions, and you are definitely one of them Jeremy.
Again, AWESOME job!

Love and hugs,
