Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Free To Just Be
 
Jumbled words and scattered thoughts
lay tucked away inside my heart

afraid to loosen, let self go
walked around on tippy-toes

then came a man with poets dream
welcomed all or so it seemed

coffee brewing, porch light on
doors open wide, dusk 'til dawn

tears and laughter filled the halls
scribbled words on slated walls

extended hands from sea to sea
poems 'n prose, word imagery

Prayers, concern for those in need
healing balm for souls that bleed

hearts reaching out with love, respect
non-judgemental, to trust, accept

no more masks, all set aside
revealing selves, no need to hide

heartsongs drip off poets pen
unleashed at last from minds den

dark and light come out to play
behind the doors of his cafe

jumbled thoughts and scrambled words
find escape in written verse

tears of sadness, love deployed
celebrations of pure joy

family ties made whole, complete
building bonds...some bittersweet

enabled to be just who we are
folks world over travel far

to sit and chat, share favorite rhymes
visit friends, spend quiet time

a special room to pen our prose
this meeting place we call home

hearts exposed on ev'ry page
blended words 'pon Albert's stage

with voices heard in whispered sigh
his golden wings, taught us to fly

so here we gather, free to be
flower blossoms in field of dreams
