RoseAnn V. Shawiak (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)
Being Unto Myself
Quietly keeping to myself, hiding away from life,
testing my strength at being alone and unto myself.
Enjoying it's serenity, it's beautiful depths within
me; casting out my line, catching all sorts of ideas
to set into poems.
Loving the distance I put between myself and others -
it's a peace of heaven not to hear from anyone else's
jealousy or doubts.
