Welcome to Four Lines! I have a goal I would like to write at least four lines of poetry or a haiku every day for the rest of my life. I'm excited about this challenge! Also, along with my daily poem, I will be reading at least four lines of another author's poetry. I'll try to include that here also. So I'm thinking - how difficult can it be to read and then write one poem a day? We will see! - Claudia

Creator, help me know what to say.
  He hates his world, he thinks is the world,
  and everything in it,
  she cries, missing her children,
  he wishes his parents would die.
Help me know what to say.
  She dwells on her abuser, handing
  him her power,
  he swears and screams about war,
  she says she's dying to die.
What do I say?
  She shouts at mockingbirds outside
  her window,
  he thinks I'm an angel, then asks for
  phone sex,
  he says You and the devil fight
  in his mind.
Oh Creator! help me know what to say,
the kind, best words to say,
so I can help them
and help me.
