Fancied meself a poet

 

struck a cadence and pretense

to any fool listener

accepted popular consensus

If I wrote for likes I wrote

If I wrote for likes I wrote cheap, and crap. When i wrote for my soul to reach yours, I found joy and sincerity connecting with that one soul who needed to hear what I felt I should say.

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

We all feel good when we get the likes--and sometimes I feel frustrated when my writing gets ignored.  But ultimately, we should all be writing for ourselves and our own souls.  thanks for dropping by and commenting.
