       Should I turn it left to open the door, or should I turn it right? Or indeed, should I lock the door altogether while I have the key in the lock?

    Which would be safer?

    Which would be safer for my soul and which would be safer for my psyche?

    Can you sell me insurance?

    They never taught me how to write. All those years in primary and secondary school and they never taught me how to write. And all those years in University and they never taught me how to write. And all those years in business and the Public Service and they never taught me how to write. And yet here I am cast on the shore with only a keyboard.

    I have been given the key, can I turn the lock?

      I like the repeat of "and" that gives the poem a tone of can you believe this? I like honesty in writing as I am one to want to connect to words. I think it is just swell when someone has the talent to do that using structure and other literary tools, however so much heart, soul, and emotion can be captured with just the right words in any form. The more we do it the more we find out about ourselves and the more we reach out for those vessels of communication that would assist in elaborating our thoughts and intentions.

      I'm sure you know the answer to your question. Writing is such a mystery to me. Words seem to come and go as they please ... and they are everything ... I keep saying it everywhere I go but most people don't see or might not acknowledge that words have won wars, have built cities, and have constructed our very own reality. Once I wrote that "every single one of us is just a letter that soon turns into a word .....”

    I liked your write. It has a mystic quality to it and you are right no one can actually taught one how to really write in the true sense of the concept ... one learns or acquires the skills which is shaped by the experiences one goes through and such events are not the same for one or the other ... I see writing as a creative process similar to conceiving a child. There's no one in the world that looks like that new born kid.

    I hope you are not bored by the time you finish reading my tacky comment.

    Warm regards and keep posting :)

      For the low asking price of mere acceptance i give you the assurance that you have the potential to write. You can teach yourself, you can take a class. In fact the description was kind of like opening the door.
