#50 (Just because I can)

PP Elite

And just because I can, I will
From my mind these lyrics spill
To meld my mind with written grace
Right here in this poet's space

Such beauty in the art of rhyme
Such talent fills this poet site
And though you hold my words on high
I pale compared to what you all write

I write it quick, with typoed lines
Forget corrections every time
Such simple methods billow forth
I type fast so I won't lose my words

For poem number 50, I thought
To dedicate to what I have wrought

For poem number 50, I guessed
To rhyme about all the rest

Because only in the purest form
Can truth be gleaned from written words
And purest poets, such brilliant minds
I bring this dedication to life
To praise you all for all you do
To tell you that I envy all of you

Sometimes I wish I could slow down
Take time to let my writings out
But moving fast, synapses go
If I slow down I'll lose the tone

So for all who assimilate jealousy
Just know that I'm jealous of each of thee
And all the praise for what I see
Is now etched in these lines from me

Thank you all for such beautiful work
A many thanks for all your words
