We Be Writers

We, who be thinkers
be writers as well
not stopping to ask
why we do
what we do

We, who be dreamers
possess too many dreams
to write down
in one day, one life
one less dream
to dream,

We, who understand
how to turn a phrase
turn a corner, take a chance
write about the forbidden
the love sonnet, the heartbreak

The starry skies
and the story that was written
in your eyes….
