You say it's nothing.

A little piece of nondescript white paper

slightly torn around the edges

slightly stained from food and drink

slightly discolored from too many handlings

But it's not nothing.

Translating thoughts into words, feelings into rhyme, dreams into verse

is a dance between the perceived and the real

and the closest any human being can get 

to putting his soul into a tangible form

able to be handled and judged by others

a delicate piece of glass that can be held up to the light

so people can see the colors it throws forth.

So when I hand you my papers

and watch you intently while you read

please be kind

because I am so scared

I have given you all that I am
