A sparkle. A shining light. Something dawns upon my mind. This must be the perfect point to start with…

Down a few lines. The topic somehow excites me! So I scribble a few more. Then, somewhere in the middle, the heat goes up, and the light becomes blinding. So I stop… The task overwhelms me. I feel that I can’t go on…

Is it the topic itself? Or just my non-native English? Is it the want of experience? Or just the plain loftiness of my dream – to be recognized as a writer?

This is my first writing challenge at FaithWriters. I know I should give it my best shot. My goal is to make a good impression. But clarity of expression will be just enough.

Now my mind wanders in Nowhereland, hoping to trace the path to peace and enlightenment. I scratch my head in frustration. Inspiration won’t show up. So I search from within – deep within…

Reflections of truth ripple through my consciousness. My pen begins to bleed with new meaning. Rivers of life now flow through my brain. Fountains of joy now splashing.

“Ah. This is it! And it’s almost done!”

A new horizon looms before me as I spread my wings above the wind of dreams. The sunset sky kisses me goodbye, but I just can’t stop now. How can I? I’m soaring high!

Non-native English? Are you having us on? 'My pen begins to bleed with new meaning' - love that. Good writing.

If Helen hadn't said it, I would have — non-native English speaker? If you are this good in English, you must be a marvel in your first language. Congratulations.

Wow! What a delight!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Warm my heart!

But believe me: I really am a non-native speaker of English!

In my introduction at the message board, I mentioned that I am a 100 % Filipino from the Philippines.

I studied English in College that's why the "non-native English thing" in my article sound unbelievable, perhaps.

Again, thanks for the compliments. To God be the glory!

This is great...written beautifully! What I like best is that it is short, sweet and to the point.

By "short", I mean that I have a short attention span, and something like this is right down my alley. The "other" article you asked for in the Message Board, was much longer, and I didn't finish it...sorry; but THIS ONE is a gem!
