April PAD Challenge: Personal Mythology Prompts Day Six - Personae

Poem #6

A Journey in Three Masks

Before I was “A Writer”
I wrote just what I felt,
I didn't know the road rules
or what the journey spelt.

Then as “Emerging Writer”
I studied, read and wrote,
I ate from wisdom elders fed
and left my love a note.

So now I am just writing
but different than before,
the truth I speak is wiser
and I've not closed the door.
