What kind are you?
I am the kind of writer who is decisive and brief-
I do not like to waste my time or words –
I prefer Frost and Angelou-
And when I die someday please readAuden ‘s Funeral Blues .
I am the kind who uses a quiet and direct tone in my speech.
I am to the point and not much of a small talker .
I can go days without speaking to anyone – and often do.
I am the kind that others confide in.
They call me a good listener; perhaps it is more that
I value the strength it takes to sharetheir secrets.
It takes a quiet strength- which I am very familiar with.
I am the kind that they look to for advice .
I tend to be the calm in the storm
and can maintain utter control in the most extraordinary of circumstances .
I am the kind who is alone- more than together.
The holder of the secrets,
the calm in the storm,
the advisor to the broken,
the holder of the heartbreaks and the captain of the ship.
The kind who walks against the wind
and with a quiet strength-comes back-again and again and again...
