An Advice To A Young Writer (Taken To Heart) - Poem by Mia de Guzman

He said,
'Keep on writing...'
(and, out of shock,
she gave him a smack)
She asked (herself)
'What do I write about? '
When all of man's
beauty
and wonders;
his woes
and sorrows;
his busy streets
and his countryside's silent hours;
yesterdays,
today,
and tomorrows
have long been
immortalized
by those who came before her.
Little is left, it seemed.

Her heart then remembers the tiny little voices
which still lingered
inside the hearts
of strangers she met,
tiny voices of her own, as well,
and how each one
wanted to be heard.

He said,
'Keep on writing...'
And now that she knew well,
she did.
She let her hands
do what they do best.
