What Do I See Acrostic

I Write My Life

Painfully shy as a child
Hardley a word to say
Yet I can talk on paper
Letting my voice have its way
Life is sometimes mundane
It isn't like stories I've read
So to ward off the bane
Rewriting is done instead
Hope is brought to the front
Optimisim is given a part
Does it alway work
Enough to keep life in my heart
Still, I'd like confidence as a perk

How beautifully put!
Keep writing.
You write so beautifully.
I have noticed that from the very start.
Believe me, if I had not read this,
I would have never guessed.
From your poems you come out as confident,
clear in thought, a master of your art.
Just keep writing and enthralling the world,
That is your calling in life.
I just love your writes!!!

This is MY sister. Her words are beautiful and so is she!
But, i remember she wasn't shy in telling me off a time or two. Not that I ever did anything wrong. Maybe she should have just written me a note. Then i could have tossed in the garbage and went on my way. NOOOOOO! she came out of her shyness and spoke!!! boy did she speak!! me
