"To Venture"

To venture into the heart-
To put words down on paper,
In that attempt at the narrative art:

Thoughts and dreams-
And emotion,
To form a link in verse.

Usually modifying
And elaborating-

Even if it's not
That highly illuminating:

Since it begins
Without always knowing
Where you're going-

Once you put down
That very first line.

Yet whether it is,
Or isn't literary-

Or involves
Any poetic artistry:

It's still an invitation
To try and say
What's in your own heart-

By way of translation
Through the processes
Of your mind.
