Path of the Indie

Yahoo Image Search

Neither alone
Nor in a group
The indie stands between
Depending on our own hands
To start the tide
Hoping others arrive
Their whispers
Turning the ripple
Into a wave

Our path is filled
With sneers and suggestions
Advocates of Lucifer
Hocking their wares
At every intersection
Determined
To kick you off the path
Because going alone
Holds too much uncertainty

Yet one must carry on
There is still our story to tell
No other mind
Or set of fingers
Can forge the works we make
So we push forward
Many with only half a clue
As long as we can write
Another day

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    Oh man, this so is me. I feel like one of those newspaper boys of the 19th century hocking my wares. Great poem and illustrates the frustration of any author. πŸ™‚
