No One

… just me

“A man’s heart plans his way,

But the Lord directs his steps.”

Proverbs 16:9

I’ve waited seasons,
through times of bitter cold
months of sweltering heat.

As the red-wings return,
the flight of Canadians 
fly toward southern lands.

I’ve waited seasons,
through times of marketing 
changes, changes, changes.

As publishers pick people,
writers with a popular standing
and social following, I waited.

I’ve waited seasons,
through long decades
of hibernation, like the bear.

But the season for Wolf
has come with self-publishing,
a “no one”, can be heard.

MTB: Protest Poetry

Perhaps, a gentle protest after waiting decades to birth a book. Self-publishing has now made it cost efficient and possible. Jemi’s Noble Quest, (Whispers of Messiah) coming soon at Amazon.

  1. Oh, I know this so well; having waited years and approached so many agents, I finally self-published my children’s novel in March/April, during the first lockdown – a pandemic baby. The lines that pricked my heart:
    ‘As publishers pick people,
    writers with a popular standing
    and social following, I waited’
    and
    ‘But the season for Wolf
    has come with self-publishing,
    a “no one”, can be heard.’
    Congratulations and good luck!
