Holding on to Langston – One More Time!

“Helen Keller”

In the dark,
Found light
Brighter than many ever see.
Within herself
Found loveliness,
Through the soul’s mastery.
And now the world receives
from her dower:
The message of the strength
of inner power.

This deserves a WOW! Perhaps we should have a WOW rating system. I, probably like many of us (not that I’m Helen Keller), can substitute the “She” in this poem for “I.” It has definitely been in the valleys where I’ve grown (not on the mountain tops) and discovered what I have to offer others. Who knew that my weaknesses were actually my strengths?! What about you? Talk to you soon! ~Sharon – with the Write Talk!


About sharonsbooks

I am a practical and contemporary urban writer who focuses on readers/participants who are high school age youth and adults. Although I currently write fiction and poetry, I am inspired to write about social and political issues in the sometimes subtle and other times blatant way that they are present in our everyday lives. I love humor and I strive to expand the thought process and create positive change. I realize today, in the scheme of things, that I know only a little. However, I would be remiss if I didn’t share what I’ve learned as I continue to develop my own growth process. In all my writings, I’ve always sought to convey a message from my spiritual center. This keeps me broad-minded regarding diversity and a willingness to learn from anyone and everyone.
