Poet & Writer
I am a poet and a writer of no real fame
nowhere in the literary world will you find my name.
I write to empty my soul to those about
as is is not within me to rave and shout.
My needs are few and easily obtained
as my skills are few and largely untrained.
A pen, ink, paper and a quiet place
with no searching for any particular space.
The words soon arrive as the Spirit moves
with my pen in hand my writing improves.
Strokes from thoughts pour onto the page
over the years I have become quite an old sage.
I write in a cathartic style and verse
to shed my thoughts for better or worse.
An inner command determines me to write
as my hidden world comes clearly into sight.
Writing is my passion and reason for living
as through this pen I can offer my giving.
I do not write simply to be read
but to expand the thoughts which lie deep in my head.
