The Simplicity of My World

by NyKeva Sledge

I have the world at my feet and a pen in my hand. But I only have six sentences to express how I feel. The world stands still to give me time to think. The silence is priceless and golden. I let my pen touch down and scribble something gently and when I’m done I look at it slowly. Looking back up at me from my formerly blank page: “Hi Keva, How is it going?”
