A Poem for Monday, "Listen"

Shel, you are a friend of mine. As a child I loved his silly words, drawings and poems, and as a mother I love reading his books with my children and the powerful messages I now see imparted in his playful words. As an Artist he reminds me to return to that still, secret spot within myself that only I know...and trust it. 

Listen to the mustn'ts, child. 
Listen to the don'ts. 
Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. 
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... 
Anything can happen, child. 
Anything can be.
― Shel Silverstein
