What IS My Job? Revolutionary Blogging Free Verse

May 30, 2014

People ask “What do you do?”
As I ponder,
I think of life stories.

I read a young girl’s poem
and move her family to tears.
I take a husband’s writing
and change his wife’s life.
I reformat a grandma’s funny ditty
and create a “What is a Grandparent” model.
I list “things to do at the Lake”
and make an old man weep.
I dance, top down, music up
and bring smiles to weary travelers.
I comment on a friend’s lament
and remind her of a brush with greatness.
I edit a colleague’s cultural rebuttal
and give her courage to share her voice.
I argue, gently, with my daughter
and uplift and inspire others who suffer.
I take people on walks and floats and rides
and make them see what they’ve been blind to.
I express my feelings and observations
and invite others to relish the Spirit.
I see how people write and draw and express
and let them say “WOW! I did THAT!?!?!”

I, I, I and I see
with eyes
others haven’t yet opened
and give them strength
and insight
and courage
and power
to change the world.
