EDITOR’S NOTE: Beth Sleboda, a poet from Livonia, shares why she does what she does ...

“Mission Possible”

She is an entertainer.

That’s what she likes the most.

That mission can explain her

drive to write and post.

She likes to make a difference —

to help the world to feel.

But COVID’s sat upon her soul,

and compromised her zeal.

If it weren’t for Facebook,

“The Owl” and LCN,

she might lie down in bed one night,

and not get up again.

Thanks to each person and each publication that helps make my mission possible ... and provides motivation for me to crawl out from under the covers. If only that motivation would apply to housecleaning...🤣

Love,

Beth Sleboda
