reasons we write

"Writing Our Destiny"

Just a thought!

Collections of Sonnets, lengthy prose and book length poems

Forgotten in libraries, collecting dust in drafty homes

Carefully written words over centuries of time

Some, literary quandries, some word weaved in rhyme

Passed down through families or flee market finds

Hidden works, covered in cobwebs, eluding our minds

We continue to write, relieving boredum or stress

Working through problems, some need to confess

Writes of love, or love loss, some scribbling with rage

All destined for fuel, in the comming Ice Age'

"Writing Our Destiny"

What Kind of Poet am I?

Just a thought!

The things we write, some good some bad.

Depends on the day, whether happy or sad..

Some things we write are misunderstood,

The critiques weigh in, if it's bad or good.

I wear Snoopy bandaids to lighten the blow..

From pretentious poets who think they know.

I bounce words that rhyme from one to the other,

Most having meaning the synapse will cover.

I write for grins to help pass my day,

In hopes a smile will come your way.

Not everyone comments , so, I may never know it...

I guess in the end, I'm just a rubber poet'
