The Journey of Pieces traces a journey of a young poet and of the pieces composed by her. Inspiration for her poems came to her in response to events in her life. Her poems share sensations of love, pain, and whimsy. This collection chronicles the changes that author Keith Sly Simpson encountered as she approached each new event or occurrence in her life. She bares her feelings in verse as she lives the moments that inspire her time and again.
From sorrow to love to confusion to passion, she explores the diverse set of emotions that exist in her own personal world. The Journey of Pieces provides a glimpse into the life of a teen who is just learning to spread her creative wings and take literary flight.
I Don’t Wanna Be the Stars (14th March 2013)
I don’t wanna be the stars but a moon
I don’t wanna be the planets but rather sun
I don’t wanna follow anyone
But just portray my inner self soon
Don’t wanna become the echo but rather remain silent
Don’t wanna show my back and turn
But rather stay and learn
Don’t wanna become unique but rather me
Don’t wanna hear or just see but rather feel
But all above I just want to
LIVE, LIVE, LIVE!
